Description from

Definitely warm enough to keep out the wind and cold during a frigid Minnesota winter. I knew it was special when strangers stopped me on the street, asking where it came from.

The pattern is simply knit in the round with easy shaping at the top. It's a good introduction to the fair-isle technique, too.

If you've never attempted fair-isle knitting before, it is a good idea to make a practice swatch. Be sure to hold the non-working yarn loosely behind. To avoid twisting the yarns, try holding one color in each hand, using the Continental method for the left-hand yarn, and the English or American method with the right-hand yarn.
