Knit a cute beanie hat in a simple but striking fair isle design with this hand knitting pattern suitable for the intermediate knitter. This colourful and cosy design is perfect for keeping your head warm on cooler, breezy days or would knit up as a great Christmas gift for an outdoor loving friend.
This fair isle hat pattern is designed to fit an average adult female head (55.5cm/22inch circumference) and is knitted in the round. The extra long ribbing at the brim offers a variety of wearing options including full or partial folding, pulled down low over ears for extra warmth, or left looser for a more slouchy effect. The simple fairisle pattern repeats are worked, in knit, from a colour knitting chart before finishing in a single colour for the crown shaping.
This practical and versatile knitted hat pattern would make a great project for those wishing to practice their stranded colour work technique in the round. It is also a quick and relaxing knit for more advanced knitters.
The beanie is worked in five colours of Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift and uses less than a 25g/105m ball of each. Consequently this pattern would also make an ideal stash buster for 4 ply (Sport weight) yarn.
This beanie hat pattern is part of a mini accessories collection inspired by the colours and treasures found at Hill Head, my favourite coastal dog walk. The Hill Head Snood and Hill Head Mitts are also part of this collection.
Materials: • one 25g (105m/114yds) ball each of Jamieson's Sheltand Spindrift in shades 805, 230, 315, 304, 185 • a set each of double pointed needles or a circular needle in sizes 3mm and 3 1/4mm (US 2.5 and 3) or alternative size to obtain required tension. • A stitch marker and a tapestry needle.
Tension: 28sts and 32rounds to 10cm using 3.25mm needles in knit over the fairisle chart.
All my patterns are written in English using standard UK knitting terminology. The colour work section of the pattern is worked from a colour knitting chart.
