It’s a fancy little fair isle house for your head!

Zirtag is a simple and relatively quick stranded hat available in two sizes, designed to look good in two solid colors. With three different stranding patterns and prominent decreases flowing up into the i-cord top, it’s a good hat for anyone: any age, any gender, any predilection towards or against fashionable hats.

It’s quick enough to be a last-minute present, interesting enough to keep your interest, and straightforward enough for knitters who are just starting down the rabbit hole that is stranded knitting.
