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.
Worked 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 you can 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 has 21 easy-to-read charts (with Xs for DCs) for each pattern included, 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 you like for this pattern, just remember a tighter tension is better for mosaic crochet.
This is a long blanket, as I wanted it for laying 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.
