Additional Materials
Circular needle size 7 (4.5 mm), 36 in. (91.5 cm)
GAUGE:
18 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
PATTERN STITCHES
K1, p1 Rib
Row 1: K1, *p1, k1; rep from * to end of row.


Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.


Rep Row 2 for K1, p1 Rib.

NOTES:
1) Fair Isle is color technique that involves knitting a pattern with two or more colors of yarn in a row.

Unlike intarsia knitting, the colors used in Fair Isle knitting are carried across an entire row.



2) Carry colors not in use across wrong side of work.

Pick up new color from under old color to twist yarns and prevent holes.



3) If you are following the Fair Isle chart, work all RS rows from right to left and work all WS rows from left to right.



4) Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of sts.

Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
