Fair Isle colorwork + a little optional texture. Sized to fit the average adult head.

Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift colors used in sample:
Scotch Broom 1160, Pine 234, Moorit 108, Eucalyptus 794, Madder 587, Eesit 105, Heron 315.
The hat is knit predominantly in standard, Fair Isle-style stranded stockinette stitch. But, I’ve added purl stitches in a few places to provide some textural interest. The textured stitches on the earflaps help to keep the earflaps nice and flat. But, all of the textured / purl stitches are really optional - you can do the entire hat in stranded stockinette stitch, if you’d like.
