Ok, so I wanted to learn Fair Isle knitting. I just LOVE that style and all the colors and patterns. I decided to start with a hat. The pattern is called Icebreaker Hat and its put out by Green Mountain Spinnery. If you look that up (not sure how to do links in this yet 😉 ) you’ll see what it looks like when someone really knows what they are doing makes it.
Still, I am very proud of it. I love the colors and overall am happy with my first try at it. I do plan to make another but this is good for now. It’s very warm and thats the main thing right? You will also notice the lack of ear flaps on mine. I’ve been working on them for a couple weeks now and they never come out right. I’ve tried and retried and retried about 6 times and by this point am mortally sick of them. So for now…. I’m leaving the flaps off. It worked fine last winter and I’m sure it will work fine this winter. Sometimes you just have to choose your knitting battles. LOL.
