Top 10 Fair Isle Sweater Patterns of 2014

top ten fair isle sweater patterns

Nothing says “December” like the recent trend of ugly sweater parties. The party where everyone dresses in the most outrageous holiday sweaters (generally fair isle style) for the entertainment of all. However, as sweater knitters our goal is to create just the opposite, the anti ugly sweater so to speak.

This week I have put together a collection of patterns that for me evoke the traditional charm of the Christmas sweater while still being fashionable. In this collection I have included sweaters for men, women and children so that everyone can have a cozy, colorful sweater to wear this winter.
