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.

My grandmothers were the reason I love hand-work and crafts so much. As soon as I was able to manage a needle and thread, they gave me craft-related responsibilities abound. My earliest crafting photo is me at 5 years old sitting atop a table making a foam cake base in deep concentration, craft glue in one hand and crepe paper in the other.
