Hi! I'm Mary Ann Stephens, owner of Kidsknits.com, an online yarn shop specializing in Norwegian and Fair Isle knitting. I do a fair amount of designing and teaching. As I've gotten older, I've had to face the truth: I love to knit, live to knit, have to knit...but I cannot stand to knit with only one color!! My knitting blog is Two Strands (twostrands.com) and you can find me on Ravelry as "twostrands". Feel free to email me at: mas AT kidsknits DOT com.
Thanks for visiting and happy knitting!
I wanted to design a hat with universal appeal to both knitters and wearers. The motifs come together beautifully from every angle, yet the chart work is easy to follow, with simple, symmetrical shaping, so experts will appreciate its design sense, yet Fair Isle novices will have fun with it, too. The design is unisex, and instructions are given for adjusting your gauge to fit a wide range of heads (youth through adult XL), so it should suit most everyone on your gift list.
As always, if you ever have any questions, my contact info is included and you're always welcome to drop me a line.
Gauge: In stockinette stitch, with colorwork
Youth 20 stitches over 4" / 10cm
Adult 18 stitches over 4" / 10cm
XL Adult 16 stitches over 4" / 10cm
160 yards of Worsted weight
