Madly Hatted

I enlisted Mom's help for some pictures of my test-knit hat.
 And I got her help with the pom-pom too.
This was a really fun knit. I discovered that I'm much better at fair isle when it's in the round, instead of knit flat.

I made this one a few inches longer than the pattern calls for. The intended recipient likes a bit of slouch to her hats. Of course, there's still a chance it won't make it to her.... I'll decide after I make some matching mitts.

UPDATE: If you want to make your own hat, she's posted the pattern on her blog

That looks like it would be snuggly warm. Your mom makes good pompoms!

I love the slouchy look! Thanks so much for test knitting!

And...you knit Fair Isle flat!!! No wonder you hated it! Yikes. I always do colorwork in the round- this is what steeking was invented for!

Very nice hat. You did a beautiful job on the colorwork! I like a slouchy hat too.

I"ve never knitted fair isle EXCEPT in the round and I find it relaxing. Love the finish

That turned out absolutely lovely! I like the extra length and say make another one regardless :) One to keep, one to share, such a pretty knit.

Love the colours, would look great with them reversed as well.
