Fair Isle, a type of stranded colorwork in knitting patterns, can seem a little scary at first but when you take it one stitch at a time you’ll see how easy it can be to work with more than one color in your knitting.
Our quick to knit hat takes advantage of the bulky weight and gorgeous colors of Malabrigo Rasta to create a visually interesting pattern while teaching you the basics of stranded colorwork. And trust us, the actual knitting is fairly simple!
You can purchase a downloadable PDF of this pattern here.
The pattern contains written instructions, stitch diagrams and technical illustrations. It's the same pattern included in our One Big Happy Basic Colorwork Hat Kit, which includes enough yarn to make 2 hats! Enjoy FREE Youtube tutorials for step-by-step instruction.
