Description

Skill Level: Intermediate

This fun and graphic beanie is great for any age, boy, girl, man, or woman.

You can use either a solid color or variegated yarn to create the fair isle pattern. This pattern is a great introduction to fair isle crochet since it only uses two colors throughout.

Using the Fair Isle technique this beanie will fit all ages and can be made in all colors. Use solid color yarn instead of self-striping for a much more subtle effect.

Fair Isle is a technique where two colors are used in any particular row to create pictures or designs in your project. Don’t know how to do Fair Isle? Don’t worry, there is an extensive photo tutorial section (13 pages!!!) that will not only teach you how to create Fair Isle but also covers all of this:

Color Changing throughout the beanie including at the round join. Catching the yarn to create short floats. How to keep your yarn untangled. How to keep your seam straight on your beanie. How to make a magic adjustable loop. The beanie includes full written instructions as well as a color chart for the Fair Isle portion.
