View Full Version : FO: Fair Isle Skull Cap

09-27-2008, 12:49 PM
This pattern came from son of a stitch n bitch, and it was very difficult. It was not only my first attempt at fair isle, it was knit up on a size 2 circular needle. Just a tip, don't attempt to make this with a bamboo needle. Mine snapped right in the middle of a row leaving a jagged edge that snagged a few stitches. But, the finished product was well worth the fight. My husband loves it and I have recieved a lot of compliments. Here is a picture.

Looks great. I did the pirate mittens for my nephew for Christmas -- looks like the pattern could be a matched set. You can do the pirate mittens with worsted weight yarn -- I think I used size 7 dpns.

Really cool hat :thumbsup:, just in time for Day of the Dead. I hate it when needles break/snap. You can try sending it back to the company for a replacement if you haven't had them very long.

It looks so intricate! Good job. I've had a bamboo needle that snags the yarn, I must try rubbing it with sand paper I think. I do like bamboo when the weather is hot out. My hands perspire less.

Thank you all for your encouragement! I really enjoy the finished product, but getting there was a struggle. Really the hardest part was the darned small needles. But once I switched to the turbos, it went a lot smoother.
