This snowflake themed hat has a ribbed welt and a stocking stitch body with a Fair Isle (stranded) snowflake repeat pattern encircling the lower section of the hat body. The snowflake motifs are worked using only two colours in a row which makes this an ideal pattern for those new to the Fair Isle technique. The hats pictured are worked using a lovely soft pure wool yarn in worsted weight and are topped with an optional pompom, instructions for a ‘messy bun’ version of this hat are also included.

The pattern covers sizes from toddler to adult and the instructions are written for both knitting flat on two needles with a seam at the back, or in the round using a circular needle with no seaming necessary. Each pattern is written out fully – Pompom Hat knit flat, Messy Bun Hat knit flat, Pompom knit in the round and Messy Bun knit in the round. You may, therefore, only wish to print the appropriate pages for your chosen project.
