For years Fair Isle has been associated with ski resorts and winter, but this year the pattern has proven to be a staple in the fashion world. Already, the knitting pattern has been showcased on fall runways and worn by many celebrities. I love this pattern because it seems to bring out the festive mood of the holidays and is simple to wear with almost any clothing item. Sweaters with the Fair Isle design pair well with jeans, leggings and boots. The pattern has also expanded to pieces including sweater dresses, socks, leggings and scarves. Fair isle can be dressed up or down, and is the perfect accent to a merry holiday season.
Happy holidays to everyone!
