Fair Isle Charity Hat Pattern
I’ve been gone for a while but I come bearing gifts – a free hat pattern! So, they are having a charity drive at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio to collect donations for Hats 4 the Homeless. I was inspired to donate but of course with me being me I couldn’t just use any pattern, I had to design my own. I made this hat using Vanna’s Choice and Vanna’s Choice Baby yarn.
Gauge (in sotckinette stitch w/ size 9 circular needles):
11rows x 9sts = 2″ x 2″
Triangle Pattern Stitch
Work in a 2 x 2 rib using the white yarn for 11 rows to make the band.
Work 2 rows of stockintte with the light grey.
Work 2 rows of stockintte with the dark grey.
Repeat the Triangle Pattern stitch twice.
Repeat the first four rows of the Triangle Pattern stitch.
Purl one row in dark grey.

Gather the hat at the top and sew it shut. Finish with a lime green pompom.
