A traditionally patterned Fair Isle hat in a less traditional slouchy shape. Shown in Jamieson and Smith Heritage and Heritage Naturals a unique worsted spun Shetland wool which blocks into a fine, smooth fabric.



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.
