Vintage Fair Isle Peg Bag Knitting Kit


With a nod to all things vintage, this charming practical peg bag shows off the traditional Fair Isle style of knitting at its best. Using only two colours per row, it's a fantastic project to practice this simple yet amazingly effective technique. Carrying the colour not in use across the back of the work at an even tension is part of this new skill set.

If you can knit and purl, you can knit this peg bag!
