Tulips Hat

from Anastasiaknits
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Tulips Hat
Tulips Hat
Tulips Hat
Tulips Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit and purl in the round
  • fair isle knitting

Pattern Description:

Where I live in Virginia, crocuses have started to emerge from their wintry blankets of soil, a sure sign that spring is finally on its way.

Even if snow still covers the ground where you live, create your own springtime blossoms. A fair isle band of tulips adds a welcome touch of color and cheerfulness, when it's still too cold for sunsuits.

I knitted mine up in Cascade Yarn's Ultra Pima. It's a dk weight cotton yarn with a great twist that stands up to multiple frogging (don't ask how I know this :) I used two different colors of green, light green for the main part of the hat, and dark green for the fair isle leaves, but you could choose a medium green and use it for both instead and it would look great.

For colder climates, a dk weight wool works fine, too.
