I really love the Fair Isle look in garments, but struggle at times with carrying along that second strand of yarn. Along came mosaic knitting, and I found I could have the Fair Isle look and warmth without the struggle! In this class we’ll make a hat (Child, Adult S, M, L) where you’ll learn how to get “the look”! It’s really very easy.
Yarn: Suggested – Berroco Vintage; color A 70, (80 110, 120) yards; color B & C 20, (25, 30, 50) yards each.
Needles: US size 6 16-inch circular needle, US size 8 16-inch circular needle and US size 8 double pointed needles (set of 4) or sizes needed to obtain gauge. Notions: Tapestry needle.
Gauge 24 sts by 28 rows = 4 inches in ribbing; 24 sts by 32 rows = 4” in pattern.
Class preparation The hat pattern has a choice of four sizes; Child, Adult S, M, L designed to fit head circumferences of 18 inches, 20 inches, 22 inches and 23 inches respectively. Take time to work a gauge swatch to determine your pattern size.
With smaller needles and color A, cast on 104 (120, 136, 144) sts. Work in 1 x 1 ribbing for 1½ (1½, 2, 2) inches. Leave on needles and bring to class.
