Oslo Star Hat

from Adriprints Press
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Oslo Star Hat
Oslo Star Hat
Oslo Star Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit & purl
  • ribbing
  • fair-isle

Pattern Description:

You will need yarn that meets your gauge in 2 colors. The sample used Madeleine Tosh Merino Light in Nordic Spruce (MC) & Burnished (CC).

The Oslo Star Hat's motif is inspired by so many Norwegian Star patterns I have seen and loved. The Oslo Star Hat is a beanie or toque that begins with a ribbed brim.

Choose your own adventure: create a 4"/ 10cm ribbed brim turned up once halfway or a 6"/ 15cm brim that's folded double. After the ribbed brim is complete, a fair-isle motif covers the brow or the crown decreasing to a point at the top of the hat. This project is suitable for the adventurous knitter ready to try fair-isle.

Includes links to tutorials on how to manage long floats in color-work and how to do centered double-decreases.
