Ready to add Fair Isle to your arsenal of knitting techniques?
“Snow Bunnies” is a whimsical knitted hat made with worsted weight yarn. Because no more than two colors are used at the same time, this is a great project for first explorations in the world of Fair Isle. The pattern is fully charted, seamless, and knit from the bottom up. For an added touch of fun, add the big fluffy pom-pom on top!
