First of all: Woohoo!!! I finished something (a feat that has been unattainable for some time now).
This is my first ever fair isle project, and I thought it turned out pretty well.
I'm calling this the "Humble Pie Hat" because every time I started admiring how nice it looked, I screwed up!
The other reason this was humbling is because I knit continental (although I'm right handed), and I found out that when it comes to knitting, my right hand is STOOOOOPID! My highly intelligent left hand had to show it what to do!!
Anyway, I mixed and matched fair isle patterns. I got the border around the diamonds off a Lion Brand pattern, the diamonds are from a DROPS pattern, and while waiting for my husband to finish physical therapy, I sketched out the curly pattern on top of the hat myself (although I seriously doubt it's original).
Picture was taken atop oats in our garden that we planted for a cover crop. I opted not to cut out the little guy on the right!
Thanks for looking!!
