This traditional Fair Isle pattern is my tribute to the Irish. I start with a blue ocean and sparkle it with blue metallic yarn and white wave tops, then continue with green and ocean sand. Then I top it off with the last snake that St. Patrick drove into the Irish sea. Instructions are given for an optional tubular cast-on that can be used on other hats in place of a regular cast-on. (It’s a matter of personal preference.) Note: two hats can be completed with the yarn amount that you need to purchase for one hat.
