It’s Free Pattern Friday!
This adorable Fair Isle hat has already proven to be popular around the office, even before its official release. It’s sized from newborn to adult large, so it’s a nice topper that can fit everyone. Self-shading Poems wool gives a nice graduated color shift that keeps things interesting!
The adult size shown was the first one we knit. Designer Rachel Brockman used a 1×1 rib long tail tubular cast-on for a nice, stretchy edge. Rachel did a photo tutorial of this method of casting on not long ago, in a blog post about the Nutmeg Hat and Mitts kit from our 12 Days of Winter kit series. You can find that blog post here.
Before we could publish the pattern, it caught the eye of Krista on our customer service team. She whipped up the cute teal version shown up top for her cherub-cheeked son. We just have to share his picture.
Awwwww!! Great job on both the cap and its model, Krista!
We hope you have a fantastic weekend, and that you spread a little joy in your corner of the world.
