Apple Fair Isle/Intarsia/Duplicate Stitch Charts

I’m kind of obsessed with fair isle and duplicate stitch. And the whole latest craze for hexapuffs has been igniting my imagination even more for designing cute little knit and crochet-able motifs. SO! My first toe-dip in and I decided to do a little series of fair isle apples on a baby vest.

Seriously there’s SO MANY CHILDREN being born/expected in my friends circle at the moment its overwhelming! I figured apples were suitably unisex so this was a good way to get started on the backlog of baby items I want to make AND be useful without being ‘on purpose’ specifically for a specific child. πŸ˜€

Plus it was a good excuse to use a few of my own hand-dyed yarns. I LOVE the semi-solid yellow, and I have to admit I wasn’t a HUGE fan of the red in the skein, but knitted up I REALLY changed my mind. Om nom nom. Now I want to eat an apple. Lawds can’t you just feel that wonderful juicy crunch in your mouth right now? UNF! NEED FRUIT!
