You may ask why me - a Franconian drafts such a hat? First: I love blue, red and white. Second: the fact that I(tm)m an American TV series junkie may have something to do with it :) And then seeing the American flag in so many American TV series the idea about knitting it on a Fair Isle hat just tickled me Thanks to Christine for testknitting it for me and allowing me to use her pictures. You did a great job! It has a two color dotted ribbing and bands of red and white stripes and tiny white stars on a blue background. Right at the top is a tiny white star, too surrounded by many others.. You can also knit a scarf or a cowl from the pattern by casting on more stitches and knitting it in the round. You could also make the stripes smaller. You can knit some patriotic socks , a blanket, a cushion cover :) Whatever you do enjoy this pattern and have fun with it! :) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit and purl, knit with at most two colors in the round Strands are short due to the pattern GAUGE Knitting gauge in stranded pattern: 1 x 1 inch: 7 stitches and 8 rows (2 x 2 cm: 5 stitches and 6 rows) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS This beanie fits size S and M.

I'm a hobby pattern creator and love knitting and creating Fair Isle patterns. I wish you as much fun knitting and wearing them as I have designing them! If you like my patterns checkout my patterns at or Ravelry. You can either search for stoperror or find me under the designers as Sandra Jaeger. Please note: Due to the VAT-tax changes taking effect on January 1 2015 I had to delete my on sale Patterns on Craftsy as there is no way to handle the new tax Regulation affecting European buyers via Craftsy. Ravelry tries to come up with a solution. If you are from not EU-based countries or from Germany you can still buy my on sale Patterns as usual via Ravelry. If you are from a European (not Germany) Country unfortunately there is no solution how to handle it at the Moment. Ravelry tries to come up with a solution in the next 6 months. Until then my sales are limited to non EU users and Germany. I'm very sorry for that, but the new rule is very complicated. Jippie we got ourself a Ravelry group: The knitting chartists where you can make pattern requests and take part in our pattern development. T-Shirts gibt's von mir auch bei spreadshirt. News 2016: I can now republish priced standalone Charts that were available at Craftsy on Loveknitting. If you are missing one, please let me know via and I will offer it there and send you an update.
