A Valentine-themed fair isle hat to wear all winter long! Make hats for the ones you love :)

This is a great pattern for beginning color work because the longest float is only 4 stitches long. This pattern comes in four sizes – baby, toddler/small child, big kid/small adult, and adult. Charts are provided for each size with easy to read 12-stitch repeats. There is also a blank chart included with a simple heart outline so you can create your own color work pattern!

Approximate brim circumference (unstretched, the ribbing can stretch quite a bit):
Baby - 11”/28cm
Toddler/Small child - 14”/36cm
Big kid/Small adult - 16”/41cm
Adult - 18”/46cm

Suggested yarn is Cascade 220, or a similar weight yarn. The pattern is written to have a slightly negative ease. The two larger sizes end up a bit slouchy as well. If you prefer a more loose fit, try going up a needle or hat size. Or knitting both the brim and hat in the same larger needle size.
