Classic Elite Yarns 9246 Fair Isle Hat PDF
Liberty Wool print and solid colors work together producing results that look far more complicated than they actually are to knit. Choose colors that play well together – they should coordinate but not match exactly. If your printed color contains a color that matches your solid color, the colorwork will become “muddy” and the pattern will be lost where the two colors meet.
