I wanted to design a hat with universal appeal to both knitters and wearers. The motifs come together beautifully from every angle, yet the chart work is easy to follow, with simple, symmetrical shaping, so experts will appreciate its design sense, yet Fair Isle novices will have fun with it, too. The design is unisex, and instructions are given for adjusting your gauge to fit a wide range of heads (youth through adult XL), so it should suit most everyone on your gift list. As always, if you ever have any questions, my contact info is included and you're always welcome to drop me a line. Happy knitting! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY basic knowledge of circular fair isle knitting and chart reading required GAUGE Gauge: In stockinette stitch, with colorwork Youth 20 stitches over 4" / 10cm Adult 18 stitches over 4" / 10cm XL Adult 16 stitches over 4" / 10cm SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Youth: 18" / 45.7cm with gauge = 20 sts over 4" / 10cm Adult (shown): 20" / 50.8cm with gauge = 18 sts over 4" / 10cm XL Adult: 221/2"/ 57.2cm with gauge = 16 sts over 4" / 10cm SUGGESTED YARN 160 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Dale of Norwy Hegre Yarn COLORWAY Use any two contrasting colors your heart desires!
