Women on a tiny island known as Fair Isle, in the Shetland Islands, halfway between Scotland and Norway created their own designs for stranded color knitting.  In this class you will knit a headband using a classic Fair Isle design. The headband will be knit in the round and you will learn the different ways of holding both strands of yarn.  You must be comfortable casting on and knitting stockinet stitch.
