A beautiful, colourful Fair Isle Hat, knitted in the round and great for using up leftover scraps of 4 ply yarn.

This is a one size hat suitable for the average adult head. The finished hat is a slightly slouchy beanie, but could be blocked to make a tam, if preferred.

The hat is knitted in the round and incorporates stranded knitting worked from charts. The pattern is suitable for advanced beginners / intermediate knitters.

You will need a total of approximately 60 g of 4 ply (fingering) weight yarn, in eight colours, as follows –

Colour A - approximately 5g

Colour C – approximately 8g
Colour D – approximately 12g
Colour E – approximately 5g
Colour F – approximately 9g
