Happy New Year!!! On the very first day of the brand new 365 days of 2017, I am pleased to share with you my new knitting pattern on a Poinsettia Fair Isle Pullover (girl and boy version) which I have designed and knitted for my kids. I hope this pattern brings a whole new year of blessing to my readers, followers and visitors, may 2017 be a better year for you.
Fair Isle is a traditional knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colours. This Poinsettia Fair Isle Pullover uses 3 colors to create pattern and at any one time, the most only 2 colors are involved. The knit pattern uses circular and double pointed needles to knit top down in round. It begins with a neck rib then extend to knit a yoke with Poinsettia Fair Isle pattern, follow by the body, lastly the sleeve. The Poinsettia Fair Isle pattern comes in 2 sizes, 8-10 years and 11-12 years. Photos and videos are included in the pattern to make it easier for you to understand.
To be frank, I have been wanting to knit Fair Isle pullover for my kids, especially for a winter vacation abroad. During early last year, we finally decided to have our holiday in Japan: Hokkaido and Tokyo to be particular. Since we’ve planned it quite early, thus, I have ample time to design and knit this Poinsettia Fair Isle Pullover for my kids and also the cable pullover for him and a raglan pullover for me, together with other knit items to be published soon. Not to worry that you have left over yarns for this fair isle pullover, I am going to publish the matched beanie hat (published) and leg warmers (published)soon that are using the same yarns.
