After 2 hours spent weaving in and trimming the ends and seaming the seams…
What I learned from this hat:
To avoid the above – ALWAYS KNIT FAIR-ISLE IN THE ROUND!
The pattern called for it to be knit flat, but just because a pattern SAYS you should do it one way, doesn’t mean you have to! If I showed you what the side seams look like, you would follow my advice – the pattern does not line up very neatly and the seams are kind of “lumpy”. But it’s done and I still think it looks cute.
