The Slouch Hat
Designer: Simona Merchant-Dest, from The Art of Seamless Knitting
Description: This Fair Isle hat will teach you how to work Fair Isle patterns seamlessly without a visible jog between rounds. There are a number of ways to achieve this—in this case, the beginning of the round shifts one stitch to the left every round. When working from a charted pattern, the challenge of this technique is to keep the pattern correctly aligned throughout the piece. Once you’ve learned this technique, you can apply it to all of your seamless knitting. Enjoy this free hat knitting patterns!
