Fairisle Hat II

 

I finished the hat on Monday night. I thoroughly enjoyed this knit and I still have more than enough left over wool to make a third, well maybe. For now I've tucked the left overs in the closet for another day. I'm pleased with the way this hat turned out.  Here is the first one I knit that my son adopted in 2014.

My notes were quite thin for the first one, they were lacking many details but I designed the hat using a book (don't know which one) of charted patterns. The cast on was 144 stitches so the stitch designs were either a 6 stitch repeat or an eight stitch repeat. I just randomly chose which two colors would be in each section.

This hat was intended for me but I think my husband might want it....so at least we live in the same household and can share wearing it. (not at the same time of course!)

Ravelry notes

What are you working on this week?

  1. I am knitting another pair of socks and working on a sweater - while I try to convince myself that I don’t need to start another project! I love the color work on the brim of your hat. Pretty colors.

  2. Your hat is lovely, and I like how it's similar but not the same as your son's. I'm finishing up a pair of socks, and I just bought yarn for another pair of very bright socks.

  5. The hat is great. Love the colors you chose to use. Just finished a lapghan and dishcloth. Started another sock yesterday as a traveling project. I am dog sitting this week so needed something portable.

  7. Oh gosh I love that hat! So pretty and colorful. Nice that it is your own design too. I'm sorking on socks (of course).

  8. Looks great! I am still knitting the pale green shawl/scarf, but my son took one of the knitting needles and used it as a sword and now I can't find it.

  10. That hat is beautiful. I love the purple crown. Let's see. I am cruising down the corner of the Scrappy Habitation Throw and knitting on some mitts. I have two shawls on the needles and I'm dreaming about some new projects which shall remain in my head for awhile. Too many WIPS means isn't fun for me.

  13. Your hat is brilliant! I can't do Fair Isle, although when I retire I would like to give it a go. My brain is way to busy right now. Stay safe.
