It is said that if you can knit with one color you can knit with two. It is only a matter of thinking one row at a time and watching the magic of Fair Isle unfold. The colorwork patterns known as Fair Isle originated in the Shetland Isles and have a long and rich history. Each Fair Isle pattern is magical.  You work across each row with two colors to create a beautifully patterned, double-thick fabric. Even a simple, stranded pattern looks like a work of art. We will knit the Modjeska Cowl. It looks great with 2 solid colors, and more complex if you choose 1 solid and 1 variegated color. Be prepared to accept the compliments you will receive!
