This pattern is for a regular sized fair-isle hat, and no further sizing options are included. The gauge is around 32sts per 10 cm, with a 24 sts. repeat. It is possible to resize by adding or reducing a repeat, but the pattern does not include any options for this.

The pattern is charted, not written, and requires 3 colours of shetland (or equally ‘hairy’) yarn between 20 and 25 grams per colour. The hat is knit on a 3 mm circular needle with a magic loop for the crown. Instead of a magic loop, you could use a set of DPNs.

Any combination of colours is possible as long as you like it and make sure there is sufficient contrast between them.
