This lovely hat is knitted in the round using the Fair Isle technique, with breaks in between of plain and purl rows. The pattern repeats are easily memorised which result in rather quick and enjoyable knit.
The pattern includes a bonus pattern for the adorable mini hats, which make a lovely Christmas decoration.
