I adapted a stitch pattern from Melissa Leapman's Mastering Color Knitting for this hat. I am so pleased with how it turned out!
2011 Knit Challenge: 9 knit, 51 to go!
And I am still loving Fair Isle =)
I combined Patons Classic Wool in Royal Purple with Loops and Threads Impeccable in Grass to get a sweet color contrast. Brim is 2x2 ribbing with size 7 US circulars and then I switched to size 8 US.
