Dear Kenderasia’s readers this will be my last post before Christmas so I wish you the happiest Christmas, I hope you’ll spend these days with the ones you love.
I think that nothing makes me feel festive and ready for Christmas time than fairisle pattern, fashion and knitting.
What is fairisle? It’s a knitting technique which take its name after Fair Isle, part of Shetland islands in the north of Scotland. This traditional technique combines 3-5 colours to create the pattern and often features winter-like subjects, such as snowflakes, reindeer etc.
Of course I’m fond of snowflakes and reindeers. Fairisle pattern makes me think about Northern Europe – you know, Santa Claus’s home! and Rudolf’s! I mean, which one doesn’t love Rudolf! -, cozy days, the snow, hot chocolate, festive lights, gifts…
For this winter I bought some fairisle stuff: a dress, the cutiest leggings ever, two scarves directly from Finland
And here there are some inspirations for you to rock the fairisle mood and feel a little more festive
