Irish crochet is instantly recognizable. The common rose and leaf motifs, joined by delicate lace netting, make up a vintage style that dates back centuries — according to Irish Crochet Lab, Irish women used to sell these crocheted items (doilies were often up for grabs) during the potato famine of the 19th century.

We're all familiar with the gorgeous knitted Fair Isle sweaters, but here's a little secret for our Bluprint crocheters: Fair Isle crochet patterns can give you a similar look, including the yarn floats on the wrong side. While Fair Isle crochet patterns don't always follow the same design standards as their knitting counterparts, why should knitters have all the fun?

Fair Isle is a type of stranded knitting that hails from Scotland, and traditionally, it uses a total of five colors or less — and a maximum of two colors per row — to produce motifs such as stripes, stars and swirls. But if you're more savvy with a hook than needles, crocheters can replicate this gorgeous style with a bit of strategic stitching. Here are some must-know tips to get you started.
