This great FAUX Isle hat incorporates every trick of the trade- faux cable ribbing, printed fair isle yarn and a swirling top to create a stylish hat that will keep you warm whether skiing, snow shoeing or just hanging out in the cabin. This classic has been updated. It is fast to knit on size 10 needles and very little finishing work required! The sizing is a bit slouchy on a woman for a feminine drape and snugger on a man for a more fitted look. All of the details add up to a very wearable hat with style! The pattern includes all the directions, including special directions for joining in the round, and lots of pictures to guide you step by step through the faux cable.
