Fair Isle is a traditional knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colors, and this book teaches crocheters this wonderful art of color change. Intermediate crocheters will follow color-coded charts as they learn to use a single crochet and carry behind or work over the yarn. The seven projects are explained with easy-to-follow instructions and are made using three to five different colored DK, chunky, or medium worsted-weight yarns. The designs include fingerless gloves, a cowl, a hat, a purse, leg warmers, a pocket shawl, and a scarf.
