Candy Coated Fair Isle Hat Pattern

Using variegated yarn against a solid color in fair isle helps make a knit hat pattern look much more intricate!

The Candy Coated Fair Isle Hat Pattern cleverly uses white yarn against a rainbow striped yarn for an interesting effect. This makes the hat look like it was knit with six different skeins of yarn, when truly you only need to keep track of two. For this reason, this knitting cap design is ideal for beginner fair isle knitters who want to impress with their newly-obtained skills. If you're not a fan of the rainbow look against the white, just about any other color combination in variegated yarn will give you the same cool effect.
