A question for you: Since the color motifs are close together, would fair isle have worked for this hat?
I did try fair isle first but found that they were far enough away from each other that the stitching in the back just would not stay tight so I gave up after a couple tries. Since I knit it in the round, I couldn't use intarsia either and I discovered that after I tried that too then googled info on doing it in the round and found you can only do intarsia on flat knitting so duplicate stitch it was! lol
