The Fair Diamonds Beanie is perfect for fall! This beanie is simple to work up and would be an excellent first time fair isle project. Using two contrasting colors of super bulky yarn (I suggest Lion Brand Woolease Thick & Quick or Hometown USA), the diamond within a diamond pattern comes to life quickly. The short repetitions are a breeze to memorize.

Use 10mm needles in place of 9mm if you knit tighter than the gauge

This 6 page PDF pattern includes written instructions as well as a printable charts for both sizes - child and adult.

This hat is worked on circular needles - I recommend either 16 inch circulars or using the magic loop method. Pro tip - if your Fair Isle is normally too tight, try knitting inside out.
