We’re pretty sure Fair Isle is going to usurp plaid as the preferred pattern of hipsters in cold climates. Like plaid, Fair Isle isn’t stylish at first sight, but it’s just so folksy and familiar-looking that it grows on you. And when you’re wearing a snowflake- or animal-patterned sweater, you’ll fit right in, whether you’re sipping a hot toddy après-ski or chopping down trees.
