And Mountain is a cheating fair isle because  colorwork pattern was made  with a self-striped yarn. Great idea if you don’t want to deal with more than 2 yarns at one time.

I also included in the book blank templates of each pattern so you can play with your colored pencils before knitting and try different color combinations.

Enjoy this collections and start making yur X-mas gift… Remember that X-mas is coming (and Winter too)!

With love, Marce
