If you purchase 5 of my self-published designs at the same time (they need to be in the same cart), you will get the least expensive for free!

This ain’t your grandmother’s Fair Isle! The age old colorwork technique is jolted into the 21st century with cool combos of contrasting speckled yarns. If you’re not quite ready to jump in with two feet, just stick a toe in by using one solid and one speckle. But if you’re up for colorful adventure, go for it! Just make sure the two colorways complement each other so the star design shines through.

One size: to fit 54-56 cm/21-22” circumference.
Length from brim to top - about 25 cm/10”.
