Yes, self-patterning does create fabric that looks something like Fair Isle. I dye most of my own yarn, so if I want Fair Isle, I pretty much have to do the real thing, at least if I want a specific Fair Isle design. I suppose one way to get some extra stretch would be to work some ribbing into or around the Fair Isle.
