Keep your head and ears warm with the folded brim and fair isle design which creates a thick layer! The design features short floats and is a great choice for those new to fair isle.

I’ve included links to videos demonstrating techniques called for in the instructions which include a slip-knot cast-on and jogless stripes.

If you prefer a looser-fitting hat, you could increase your needle size. The pattern is easy to modify for adults with a deep crown by adding rows of stockinette above and below the design panel.

You can easily get two hats out of two skeins of coordinating yarn if you reverse the colors on the second hat.
