Hi,
I love Fair Isle and I have no idea how to adapt a fair isle pattern of my choice, to my knitting garment.  Does any one know how to do this? 
thank you for any help you can provide.

It kind of depends on what it is I think.

Have you got a link or pic of the things you want to do / combine?

What exactly are you thinking of doing?  Do you want to convert a piece to fair isle all-over or just add a band of colorwork somewhere?

Adding colorwork into a piece is pretty easy--the one thing to check is that your motif will divide evenly into your garment.  i.e. if you have a motif that is 10 sts across, and your sweater is supposed to be 195 sts around, you'll need to add or subtract 5 sts to make the total sts an even multiple of 10.
