I'm itching to do an argyle sweater but I want to do something on a smaller scale first.

I once saw a headband on the knitting lj community so a headband or preferably a hat, something along those lines...

Any suggestions?

You can put fairisle onto anything that is knitted in plain stocking stitch, so if you already have a pattern for something small which you would like in Fairisle, look at how many stitches in a row, and how many rows, then find some fairisle pattern that will fit onto it... that way you can custom make your own.

I'd start with something using only 2 or 3 colours, till you get the hang of it!

Here are some sites that give fairisle charts:
