Set against a pale white-and-natural backdrop in Silk Garden colorway #269, bold Fair Isle motifs seem to smolder in colorway #349 burnt orange, wine, black and taupe. Starting with the darker shade, the fitted hat is knit seamlessly from the narrow double-rib brim and worked in cozy stranded colorwork patterning. Rounded crown shaping is worked into the topmost motif. A fluffy pompom, made in the lighter shade, balances the look.
Head circumference 19.5in/49.5cm.
