PATTERN DETAILS

Skill Level: Intermediate Now you can make this award winning beanie! The Fair Isle Love beanie was the 1st place winner for Small Accessories at the 2013 CGOA Conference in Charlotte/Concord, NC. This beanie might look difficult with its intricate color changes, but the yarn does all the work! Using self-striping yarn, and a solid color you can whip up this beanie in no time. Use white to make the colors pop, or grey for a more muted look. Fair Isle is a technique where two colors are used in any particular row to create pictures or designs in your project. Don't know how to do Fair Isle? Don't worry, there is an extensive photo tutorial section (13 pages!!!) that will not only teach you how to create Fair Isle but also covers all of this: 1. Color Changing throughout the beanie including at the round join. 2. Catching the yarn to create short floats. 3. How to keep your yarn untangled. 4. Photo tutorial of stitches used on beanie brim. 5. How to keep your seam straight on your beanie. 6. How to make a magic adjustable loop. I also have video tutorials for all the techniques on the website. The beanie includes full written instructions as well as a color chart for the Fair Isle portion. The beanie is in .pdf format, you will need Adobe Reader to view and print it. Once payment clears, you will receive an email with an instant download link.

From the time I learned from my great-grandmother until now — over 25 years. Actual time crocheting (my 20s were a blur of school, work and debt, having a stash was not an option)– probably about 15. How’d you start designing? I got pregnant. I picked up the hook to make some stuff. I realized I liked designing rather than following a pattern, now I’ve been doing it over 6 years. Favorite yarn? Self striping in beautiful vibrant colors Where ya from? I spent the better part of my life in Southern California, and while I miss Disneyland and the predictable weather, I find that moving around from place to place a more interesting adventure. Currently I’m living with my family in the Bay Area but that will probably soon change as my husband’s military orders do. Update: I’m not back in Southern California for at least the next year. We’ll see where the Navy takes us next.
