Original Pattern: Fair Isle Cuffs
Knitter Extraordinaire: Tina (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Took the chart idea from the fair isle mitts and turned it into a fair isle skirt with a drawstring waist. Details can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: Fair isle stripes like these are perfect for stashbusting, and for small amounts, the original pattern is great. but if you have a bit more, why not make a beautiful skirt like this? It has a great winter feel, and I love the detail of the pom poms on the drawstring waist! I love how Tina styled it, too- not only do shorter skirts like this work wonderfully with opaque leggings, but she matched it up with another hand knit- her beautiful blue cardigan. I bet the skirt could be double as a squishy, drapey cowl, too!
