Who doesn't like a gay Fair Isle? It's bright and cheerful and sunny and all the good things in life.

The gloves are worked on 4 dpns size 2.75mm US 2 or you could go for circulars if that's your thing (it tends to be mine).

The cap is worked on 3.25mm US 3 and again in the round.

This set will with pop with colour if you stick to the original scheme which was blue for the main with maize, yellow and red for the rest. It's a shame the original pattern is in black and white. Might have to make myself a set just to see the colour combination.

The Fair Isle makes these lovely and toasty and you'll look a treat
