In the midst of this Winter season,there has been a noticeable presence in bulky sweaters,cable knits,oversized cardigans, and cozy furs. The strongest must have trend is coming from Fair Isle patterns!
Once thought of as “on the verge of tacky” holiday themed patterns, a.k.a. Fair Isles, have made quite a comeback in nearly every market, and on everything from accessories and apparel to home items. Runway designers have helped popularize Fair Isles this Fall 2010 season in their Womens and Menswear lines and we are loving it!
The traditional knitting technique originated in a tiny isle off northern Scotland and has remained unscathed throughout decades!
