JC Briar


Flames Hat

Briar: "Vibrant flames dance upward from the rolled brim of this hat. Its dazzling stitch pattern serves as excellent practice for knitters new to stranded knitting: only two colors are used, always on one 20" circular needle, with no long floats and no tricky shaping." A masterpiece of its kind. Look how the stitch pattern changes as you look up from the brim; there's constant movement here, even if you stick with a strict two-colour palette. But imagine the fun you could have with a variegate, and the visual impact! Because the knitting itself is extremely simple, almost anyone could do it. Just remember the First Rule of Fair Isle: No Tight Floats, and you'll be fine.
