Block 14 Troika
A fair-isle pattern which is worked from a chart...I needed a magnifying glass to see it! I think that you need to be a dedicated knitter to work in fair-isle.
I really love the finished result but not the making of it, carrying the wool across the back and the counting of stitches does take a lot of dedication to get it right. My finished block was wider at the top than at the bottom, which means I must have carried the wool too tightly across the back.
It would be fun to use it on a small project like a hat or a border for a little sweater or cardigan. It's not really a difficult pattern but I would say it was fiddly and you are left with 14 ends to weave in.
