This hat is from a series of hats designed during the coronavirus pandemic of 2020.  The series is color focused, channeling the beauty of the rainbow, a symbol representing hope during a dark time in our lives, made bearable by the spirit of resilience and fellow feeling of family, friends, neighbours and complete strangers.  The hat is perfect for Men or Women.

Knit in the round using Rowan felted tweed, the fair isle design is a fairly simple one and suitable for anyone starting out with fair isle knitting.  Rowan Felted Tweed is a wonderful, tweedy yarn with a felted look. It is a beautiful blend of merino wool, alpaca and viscose rayon. The rustic colour palette makes this yarn perfect for Fair Isle stranded colour work, striping and other colour work.

Class Option

Back by popular demand!  Mary Carol will teach another one session Fair Isle class with this kit.  Class will be on Sunday October 25th from 11-12:30 at Lambshoppe.  The cost of the class is $25.  Prior to class you must have your 4” ribbing completed.  Whether you are new to Fair Isle or just looking to fine tune your new skills, this will be a perfect class and Kit for you.

Sizes: There are two sizes given: medium and large adult, intended to fit a 22” and 24” head circumference. Because of the fair isle pattern, there is very little leeway to adjust the sizes of the hats, therefore care should be taken to knit to the same tension as the pattern.
