Christmas (or Not) Fair-Isle Hat PDF
Christmas (or not) Fair-Isle Hat by Cynthia Spencer is knit using Ultra Alpaca.
Want to make a new, pretty hat in Christmas colors? (Or possibly in different colors?) This is your hat!
Choose 4 colors of yarn. You’ll need one background (one skein of any of the recommended yarns will do), and then about 25 yards each of 3 more contrasting colors.
You’ll also need beads. (Of course, you could leave them off--but that would be sad.) For worsted-weight yarn, I like to use size 5 beads, but size 6 would also work. Beads are added with a crochet hook as you go, not strung. I have a video for how to do this at reallyclear.com.
The hat is knit in the round on circular needles.
Thanks for joining in, and have fun making your holiday (or not) hat!
