    Knitting "recipe" Request

    Is there a basic knitting "recipe" for fair isle hats, mitts, gloves, scarves? I have some peeries I want to use but I do need a pattern to knit by. Is there a place to get such a pattern or a book to check out / purchase?

    I am also looking for a basic knitting "recipe" for a fair isle vest (child/adult male).

    Also, how would one go about changing the "recipe" for different weights of yarn? (ie - recipe using dk weight and I want to use fingering weight)

    Take a look at Strange Brew pixiedust72 . It is a guide to designing your own stranded yoke sweaters. Included are the stitch counts for several yarn weights in many different sizes, top-down and bottom-up instructions, notes on adding short rows to improve fit, etc.

      Have you looked at garnstudio.com (DROPS)? They have tons of fair isle patterns and they're all free.

      I searched on Fair Isle in the text box and didn't get much, but when I used the drop down box for technique and chose color work many choices came up.

        Good morning. Are you on facebook? There's two great Fair Isle Knitting sites - one is for Fair Isle Keps (caps). You buy their pattern and the money goes to restoring the museum on Fair Isle! https://www.facebook.com/groups/602312566589772/ And there is a sister page for all other types of Fair Isle Knitting: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1403003430005419/ Both of these sites offer help. pattern information, and most important - EYE CANDY in the form of beautiful works of art. Best of luck...
