"This casual hat is worked in fair isle in the round from the lower edge to the crown," says Levy. "It is light but close-fitting, lending just enough warmth for chilly nights. The pattern includes instructions and colorwork charts. This simple project would be a suitable introduction to fair isle knitting in the round." This is a very distinguished hat. The shaping is bare-bones, the technique classic-- but the main motif is an unusual one, and the look extremely distinguished for men or women.
