A frothy yarn brings a series of Fair Isle motifs into soft focus on Putt’s sweet confection of a hat. Knit in Baby Alpaca Brush from Plymouth Yarn Company, it’s worked in the round from the bottom up. The deep ribbed border is work folded, offering a hint of snugness within the otherwise slouchy fit. Shaped with decreases, the crown is worked in solid pink to echo the border. A two-color pompom tops off the look.

Colorways used are #2671 pink (A), #1000 white (B). #3317 blue (C), #202 brown (D), and #6307 gray (E)
