This was my very firs attempt at doing stranded color work, or I guess they call it Fair Isle. I chose the simplest pattern I could find – a hat with a very simple snowflake design. Well, guess what? After I cast on and did the ribbing, I got to the snowflake pattern section and lo and behold! No pattern….
I searched and searched the blog site where the pattern was posted, but no pattern. So I googled and found a similar snowflake pattern:
I had to make some adjustments to fit the number of stitches I had cast on, and it worked out. However, I had some trouble with the instructions for the rest of the hat, so I sort of guessed and what I thought the pattern author meant and well…..I got a very short hat LOL. It won’t even go over my daughter’s ears when she puts it on. Oh well….it was my first foray into this knitting technique, so it wasn’t a total loss.
