  • Wow!!!! Fantastic! 😀

  • Wow wow wow! Everything so well explained. Searching for Fair Isle knitting is what first brought me to WendyKnits years ago. (That and toe-up socks.) I was so amazed and impressed. I really haven’t done much stranded colorwork, but I may just have to get back to it.

    Beautiful…thank you Wendy.

    • Ditto for me. I love articles like this with subtle details such as noticing the difference when one yarn is carried above or below.

  • I’ve followed Wendy’s blog for ages, so it really threw me to read her post here! There’s lots of great info here & I’m glad to soak in her wisdom, wherever she’s writing.

    • Wendy gets around! We are thrilled to have her in our pages.

      • And I am so happy to be here!

  • Fabulous part 2….. but where can I find part 1? How could I have missed it?

    • There’s a link embedded near the top of the article.

  • can’t wait to see the finishing. I am a believer.

  • I love the design of this but I treasure the ‘why’ part even more. Wendy does such a lovely job with explanations that I can use her wisdom across projects.

  • I read how you charted your pattern and it did not make much sense at the time – but seeing it knit up – oh, my! This is just beautiful and I can’t wait to see it finished and on. Thank you for your clarity in how you work and why. This is really useful for those of us starting out in Fair Isle, but so enamored by it. I hope to knit a jacket just like you one day!!!

  • Thank you for all the comment love! I am so pleased that you have found this project interesting, helpful, and/or inspirational!
