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.

The fiber obsession began at six years old, and my first original design was the infamous Barbie tube top. Since Barbie wasn’t paying me a living wage to keep her stylishly dressed, I ended up going to college, knitting feverishly throughout my education to maintain my sanity. I quit my day job at the phone company when I discovered that real people actually liked what I made, and have been designing ever since. I have co-authored two books: The Knitter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails and The Crocheter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails. I have designed for several major yarn companies and contributed to various magazines, books, and other publications .
