1950s Knitting - Fair Isle Gloves

The Vintage Pattern Files: Free 1950s Style Knitting Pattern - Fair Isle Gloves
Fair Isle Gloves

"Scholars believe the inspiration for what we think of as typical Fair Isle patterns, specifically the classic OXO pattern, came from the Baltic region. Following the tradition for Estonian gloves, Nancy Bush’s version features a limited colour palette for the pattern stitches against a solid background. Knitted in the round with full fingers for extra warmth, they're a great way of practicing your circular knitting and colourwork techniques."
