What materials did you use? This is the very first stranded (Fair Isle) knitting I have ever done and I made up the design myself, so the pattern is 100% my creation. I used 11 colors of worsted weight wool yarn. I hope people like my first creation.

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the fact that I created this pattern myself. Considering that it is the very first stranded project I have ever done, and I actually made the pattern the right size and properly laid out the grid, I am amazed. I never thought of doing stranded work before because it looks to intimidating, but I was totally motivated by the cold weather we had right before Christmas and the fact that I wanted to make a totally unique pattern that would suit me and show my love for all dogs. So, of course the love I have for MY dogs was my inspiration. I am so happy that I was able to make this hat exactly the way I wanted. And for that reason I am proud and it has given me confidence to do more patterns and a lot more stranded and Fair Isle knitting.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is really easy and since it was my very first try at it I wrote out notes of every obstacle that I came across, so I think it will make it very easy for someone who has never done stranded or is new at it.

I would buy the pattern if you put it together. I own a dog kennel and love to make hats to wear at work, since I can't really wear sweaters for everyone to see.
