Three Fair Isle Hats


I did it!  I achieved one of my many knitting present goals and these hats are such a delight to look at all together in a row.  I see the light at the end of my gift knitting tunnel.  It's bright and wonderful!


All of the yarn is from knit picks palette and was left over from a fair isle project that was many years ago.  I still have yarn left over :)  Maybe some mitts will be  in my far far knitting future.


I really don't have a favorite hat, I like them all.  Each one I was wondering if I would like the color combinations and while I was knitting them, I fell in love.


I made some minor alterations.  I did all of the decreasing after the fourth chart and I chose a different color for the ribbing to give it more of a major color theme.  I like it that way.

Ravelry notes:

  9. Those are all really beautiful. I can't pick a favorite. The crown on that hat is exceptionally pretty. I actually like your color choices better than the designer's!

  17. I have a fair isle sweater than my much older knitting friend, now deceased, made for me when I was in high school or college. It hasn't fit for a long time, and probably never fit my daughter right, but I can't bear to part with it...have kept it in the cedar chest...maybe I could just unravel the whole bottom and re-knit into a vest! Your hats are beautiful...maybe someday I'll spend enough time with yarn and needles to advance to trying something like this...cables are still on my learning list...have a great time!
