How to Knit a Small Fair Isle Motif

A small Fair Isle motif can be used as a simple knit border or as an allover pattern. This small Fair Isle motif pattern works well as an accent in all kinds of knitting projects.

1

Cast on 27 stitches (or any multiple of 8 plus 3) with color A.

Color A is the same as the main color (or MC) if you intend to use this pattern as a detail on a larger project.

2

Knit for 1 inch, ending with a wrong-side row.

This step creates a plain-colored border with color A.

3

Follow the stitch chart as shown.

Repeat the 7 rows for the pattern.

4

If you’re using this as a border stripe, repeat the 7 rows as many times as desired.

End the last repeat after Row 5.

5

Continue with color A only.

If you’re making a swatch, work a few more rows with color A, and then bind off.
