If you’re in the mood to play with color, this is the project for you. This wonderful hat is an ideal pattern for learning Fair Isle techniques because it has simple shaping and knits up quickly.
The color stitch repeats are easy to remember, so you won’t have to spend too much time trying to decipher a chart. You can just relax and enjoy the knitting process as the pretty color designs take shape.
This free knitting pattern uses Classic Wool DK Superwash by Patons. You’ll love the easy care of this wonderful, warm fiber — it’s machine washable and dryable and comes in a beautiful range of colors that is perfect for Fair Isle.
