Free Knitting Pattern for a Child’s Faux Fair Isle Cardigan.
Skill Level: Intermediate
IF YOU LOVE the effect of colorwork, but dislike using many balls of yarn, here is an easy way out. Variegated yarn gives the appearance of many changes of color while working with only two balls. For this sweater I used a variegated yarn with short repeats—the yarn changes every 3 inches (7.5 cm) or so. Yarn with a longer repeat will give the effect of stripes. Use any Fair Isle pattern that uses the background color in the pattern motif and substitute variegated yarn for all pattern stitches.
