Fair Isle Game

Fair isle is knitting technique named after a tiny island north of Scotland. Its traditional look is perfect for long winters to give your sweater a little extra style. Fair Isle has been around since the mid 1800’s and isn’t going anywhere any time soon. They’re a great look to invest in now and wear for years to come.

I own multiple fair isle sweaters because they make for great layering. I like to wear a button down shirt underneath and sometimes layer a vest over. The pattern adds interest to any outfit but also looks great on its own.

I’ve rounded up my favorite fair isle sweaters from this season. The first two are my favorites and I’m shocked to say they’re from… Abercrombie & Fitch (at $34 currently). I was never into Abercrombie, even in high school, but I know they’ve done some rebranding recently and I think their fair isle sweaters are both classic and traditional. I don’t see myself shopping there regularly anytime soon, but I’ll give credit where credit is due and keep an open mind!
