This hat was inspired by the colors of Kelbourne woolens “Germantown”. Traditional colors with some old sweet memories.
First I designed Rolled edge Germantown hat. Then I used the left over yarns to knit this one. You need very small amount of yarns for the fair isle section, so you may be able to pick the colors from your left over yarn stash.

The hat is knitted with traditional Fair isle technique. You use only 2 colors to create the pattern. The pattern comes with very clear written instructions with a color chart.

YARN
The yardage above is a total of 5 colors. I added 10~15% more than I used for the sample, so you should have enough to finish the hat.
