This ain’t your grandmother’s Fair Isle! The age old colorwork technique is jolted into the 21st century with cool combos of contrasting speckled yarns. If you’re not quite ready to jump in with two feet, just stick a toe in by using one solid and one speckle. But if you’re up for colorful adventure, go for it! Just make sure the two colorways complement each other so the star design shines through.
