“Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share”

—from “Christmas Time is Here,” Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack

Warm your loved ones on crisp winter evenings with a hat that celebrates the beauty of snow. This hat can be a festive part of Christmas time, but the sophisticated design with its not-quite Christmas colors will look beautiful all winter long.

The instructions assume that you know how to do Fair Isle. If you do not, check our First Fair Isle headband pattern for a tutorial, or look at our website’s video tutorial at Brief instructions on placing beads are also provided in this pattern, but the video at will supplement. (No worries. Beads are super-easy.)

SAFETY NOTE: The beads are unlikely to pose a choking hazard as they are very hard to remove. If you’re concerned, however, you could skip the beads and knit or duplicate stitch with white yarn wherever a bead would be placed. Really Clear cannot be held responsible for any accidents or injuries; knitting the hat assumes that you accept the risks.
