This hat is perfect for the person in your life who thinks that going “wild” means buying a dark-green shirt instead of a blue shirt. Choose two colors of yarn that are just a wee different so that the Fair Isle doesn’t show too much. Trust me. This will be a hit.

Gauge is worked at your choice of 5.5, 5, or 4.5 stitches per inch.

The pattern assumes that you know how to work Fair Isle in the round. If not, check out the First Fair Isle pattern, or see my how-to video at
