Hats are a quick and easy gift, and this hat is a great way to learn fair isle (stranding colors) or improve your fair isle skills! Kits are available for $40 in the colors pictured below, or for the colors of your choice from our shop for an additional $10 fee. The ear flaps and tassel are optional and attached once the main hat is done.
Supplies (not included with price of class, please buy needed supplies at Sun Dragon):
Approximately 50-100 yards of 4 colors of bulky weight yarn
size US 5 and 7 16” circular needles and size 7 DPNs (double point needles), or size needed for gauge, approximately 20 stitches for 4” on larger needles.
Drops Wild Blueberries hat pattern, free on Ravelry. I will provide the hat pattern and modifications for the adult sizing/colorwork in the kit or with the class if you have your own yarn.
Kits available for purchase with yarn and pattern for $40
If you can't make this time, contact me to arrange a lesson at another time.
We strongly recommend completing the brim before coming to the class, so we can use class time to work on fair isle technique. Here are the instructions: with smaller needles, cast on 112 stitches and join in the round. Work k2, p2 ribbing for 1.5-2” or desired length of ribbing. If you have not worked in the round before, contact the shop for a time to start you on this before the class!
