Fair Isle Hat Complete
Ta da! Another project off the needles and what makes this knit exciting is that I had a head for the photo shoot. Oh my, you should have seen the photos I snapped of me in the hat while blindly aiming. I do love the challenge. My son graciously modeled and so far the hat is still mine!
As a reference, I relied on Traditional Fair Isle Knitting by Sheila McGregor. I flipped through the book and chose some easy eight stitch patterns and made sure that I wasn't carrying the floats on the back more than three stitches most of the time. Over all, I'm pleased with the hat!
I loved the yarn Jaggerspun Heather soft just enough to wear against the skin.
I have plenty of wool to make another one, and maybe I will after the holidays. Ravelry notes are here.
The most beautiful part is the wrong side, I do believe!
