Welcome back one of my first designs: Molly the train!
This time on a lovely train fair isle beanie.
There are many color changes but at most two colors in one round.
Therefore it is a more challenging fair isle project but really worth it!
I did a corrugated ribbing to resemble the railroad tracks and it is also used as small border pattern between the trains.
The colorful train pattern consists of tiny railway engines with two waggons and are repeated over the whole beanie, the steam clouds puffing off the engine.
At the top is the blue sky with some tiny clouds and the sun is shining at the top.
I was inspired by a toy spinning top with a tiny train in it.
I hope you enjoy knitting and wearing this fun beanie as much as I did drafting it.
Note: you can use 4-ply sock yarns of other brands and also Acrylic yarn of similar weight.
Enjoy and happy knitting!
Knitting gauge in stranded pattern: 1 x 1 inch: 8 stitches and 9 rows .
