Bonnie Fair Isle

Fair Isle is a small Island located halfway between Orkney and Shetland, off the north coast of Scotland.

Traditional Fair Isle knitting has been practised for generations and combines a variety of colours with small geometric motifs.

As we are crocheters, it’s not easy to fully replicate Fair Isle knitting, but I have designed 21 small patterns so you can create your own Bonnie Fair Isle project.

Working in the normal overlay row-by-row technique, this pattern allows you to create a completely unique blanket just for you.

You can use all 21 patterns in order or chop and change them about as you wish. You can use a few of them, removing some and repeating others. It’s entirely up to you.
This pattern is a great stash buster – so get raking about in your stash and have fun.

The PDF includes 21 easy-to-read charts (with Xs for DCs) for each pattern and corresponding written instructions.

Two PDFs are available - one using US terms and one using UK terms.

You can use any yarn and corresponding hook for this pattern; remember that a tighter tension is better for mosaic crochet.

This is a long blanket, as I wanted it for lying on the sofa and covering my toes. You can, of course, create any size you want with any of the patterns.

This is a great beginner Mosaic crochet design, as the repeats are only 12 stitches and are very easy to crochet. You can make anything you want with these patterns: a hat, scarf, table runner, cushion, wall hanging, and jumper. Anything you can think of.
