Review by

Finally, Alice Starmore has decided to reissue her classic Book of Fair Isle Knitting. This title has long been out of print, and had been selling for astronomical prices on ebay. Although 12 patterns are provided, this book focuses on the history and techniques of Fair Isle knitting. Chapters include: A brief history, Pattern, Color, Technique, A wardrobe of [12] patterns, and Creating your own designs, with a brief bibliography. This is the ultimate resource for anyone who wants to explore Fair Isle knitting.
