Mary Jane Mucklestone’s Fair Isle Weekend takes you on an exciting trip to Fair Isle, a windswept island in Shetland, famous for its traditional colourwork knitting. During her many trips to Fair Isle, Mary Jane has been fascinated and inspired by the island's rich textile traditions, learning about Fair Isle knitting by looking at old textiles and sharing stories and knowledge around a cup of tea. Now, she has created a gorgeous collection of designs which she would take for a weekend trip to Shetland when a carry-on bag is all you can travel with. The book contains 8 colourwork patterns ranging from small projects like wristlets to yoked sweaters.

Knit these beautiful patterns up in Shetland wool. Buness, Rinner, Kuvvel, Kokkaloorie and Tamto all use Jamieson & Smith 2ply jumperweight which you can find here https://eweandply.co.uk/collections/yarn/products/jamieson-smith-2-ply
