The Good Years Hat
This hat is inspired by a traditional Fair Isle pattern, it is repeated to create a contemporary all over design, combining simple zig zags that converge to form a star shape at the crown.
It is worked in the round seamlessly using two colours of contrasting yarn.
It is named after the song “The Good Years” by the Scottish singer-songwriter Karine Polwart, and one of my all time favourite artistes. I was listening to the song on repeat while I was knitting the crown and it seemed a very appropriate name.
The hat can be knitted to go with the Shallmillens snood.
