This class will find us each knitting different fair isle pattern motifs on a wristlet, while all using the same six colors. In two hours of swift knitting our class will just scratch the tip of the iceberg of color variation that can be achieved using the same colors in different ways. A class format is the best way of instantly recognizing that the "interaction of color" is what makes a successful fair isle garment.
