This hat has a fair Isle border and is knitted in the round so there are only a few ends to sew in and only a knit stitch is used after the rib. There are both written instructions and a chart for the fair isle. The pom –pom is optional but would be great for teenagers and their parents alike. The kit comes in a choice of two colourways (a) Navy based, (b) light grey base. The kit is packaged in cellophane and includes 6 balls of yarn.
