I made this fair isle sweater out of yarn I'd bought for a different pattern, so I had to come up with a design that would work with the amounts of yarn that I had. I had some design help: I used the Diamon Fair Isle pattern from Madeline Weston's The Traditional Sweater Book and I used a Vogue Knitting pattern for the collar. Otherwise I just made a sweater that would use up the yarn I had, namely a lot of peach with a ball or two each of the other colours. I used Lanett Superwash, which is fingering weight, and 2 mm needles, so it took me about two years to finish this sweater because I kept putting it aside in preference for anything else.

That is beautiful! I really like the color combinations. Is the sweater for yourself?

Excellent work!  You must have the patience of 100 people to be able to finish something like this Smiley
