Elska by Ysolda


A traditionally patterned Fair Isle hat in a less traditional slouchy shape. The pattern is given in three sizes, due to the 30 stitch pattern repeat the middle size is worked by changing the gauge. Decreases are worked into the final pattern band, which was inspired by the crowns of traditional Fair Isle tams, working the shaping close to the top creates a slightly gathered effect. There will be plenty of the coloured yarn leftover to make a pompom, a cute addition if you can bear to cover up the crown pattern. The large stitch pattern is from the endlessly inspiring A Shetlander’s Fair Isle Graph Book.

Light fingering / 4ply weight wool yarn such as Jamieson and Smith2ply jumper weight Shetland yarn (100% wool, 125yds / 115m, 25g)

The printed pattern includes a complimentary download code.
