Product Details

A Fair Isle hat that stands tradition on end. Fair Isle is very “set” in its motifs and composition, but today's knitters like to push the envelope and add a signature touch while still honoring tradition. Is It Rally Fair (Isle)? It is a hat that uses XO motifs but changes them up by standing them on end. Rather than horizontal bands, the bands become vertical, but the color changes stay horizontal. It makes for a new way of looking at Fair Isle. Even the Skull & Crossbones motif looks “traditional” - but it’s not! Instructions are for slouch style with modifications in italic for a skull cap. The colorwork patterns are in chart form only.
