My knitting has progressed to the point that I'm ready to try something more complicated. I'm looking for an easy, very beginner fair isle project to make for devirginizing. I just made that word up, but this will be my very first attempt at knitting fair isle. Whatcha got, people?

I was deverginized by a pair of socks being knitted for my friend.  I wanted to put a skull and crossbones pattern on them, so I drew up a chart, looked up instructions on the 'net, and had a blast!

There are patterns all over the web for fair isle knitting. It really depends on what you want to knit and what design you want to add to it. The possibilites are endless. You can take mostly any image and make it into a chart depending on how hard you want to make it and put it on any item that you want to put it on.

So what are you wanting to make?

My goal is not so much to work on a complicated pattern but to focus on the fair isle first. So, I don't really think I want to do socks, unless the motif is just around the top leg part, because I don't want to have to deal with turning the heel and the gussets in addititon to the fair isle.

I was thinking maybe trying a simple stocking cap. Or a scarf? I don't know. The problem is that I really kind of don't like traditional fair isle motifs either. I like hearts and stars and maybe skullies, but for a first-time project I also don't want to have to make up my own pattern. Like I said, the idea here is to focus singularly on the fair isle.
