This was my first ever sweater-like thingy. For fair isle, it was super easy to memorize the pattern and would highly recommend it for a first sweater project. Be careful if you follow the pattern, though, as the gauge called for in the pattern was impossible to achieve using these yarns, so be prepared for a decent amount of math.
