It’s Christmas Jumper day on the Spoon Graphics YouTube Channel so grab your virtual knitting needles because we’re going to make ourselves a garish fair isle style pattern in Adobe Illustrator.

We’ll begin by creating a tiny stitch-like graphic, which we’ll then re-colour using the Live Paint tool to build up an intricate festive knitted pattern. The kind of pattern you create is entirely up to you. It all depends on much patience you have to sit and craft complex patterns, or even graphics of reindeer, Christmas trees and snowflakes out of the stitches.
