"For our [Sirdars] second Crofter Dk book we [Sirdar] have been inspired by the beautiful autumn colours of Scotland and by romantic days spent by the loch side."
"Crofter Dk is a beautifully soft yarn that has an incredible Fair Isle colour effect and comes in a gorgeous range of Scottish heather shades, soft blues and greys and pretty multi-colours. Crofters secret is that it looks like a real Fair Isle, but is so much easier to knit as the colour effect is in the yarn, so you have the look for Fair Isle, without all the hard work."
"Our [Sirdars] Crofter Dk designs are just so easy to create and are mainly knitted in stocking stitch. We [Sirdar] have designs for all the family with pretty smock shapes for girls and easy knit sweaters for boys, stunning little tank tops, pretty waistcoats and cardies for women and casual v-neck styles for men."
"Crofter Dk - Fair Isles for all the family ...without the fuss!"
All the patterns in this book use Sirdar Crofter DK. Other DK yarns could be suitable assuming you do a Tension Square but amounts needed may vary.
