What you need to know

Take the knit and purl stitch a step further by trying Fair Isle

It might look a little out of your comfort zone, but as long as you can knit and purl you’ll be able to make this beautiful gadget cosy. It involves following a colour chart to create the pretty Fair Isle effect and working with several colours, where the unused yarn is stranded across the back of your piece. This makes the fabric twice as thick and well-suited to protective projects, like this gorgeous cover designed by TINA BARRETT
