I ran out of time yesterday to take more pictures of this so bare with me through a dual-post of the same hat.
I really like the way the center top turned out. All swirly and amazing like frost on the windows.
You see, I decreased the top all the while switching back and forth with the colours.
I tried to keep track of the pattern to share it with you but dagg-nammit I had to wing it all the way.
Got lazy and just enjoyed the closing number.
I did have to rip back once and give the hat a bit more height to cover my ears. It that point I remembered that my sister has a longer nogging than me anyway... and once ripped back; lost track of me notes.
So there it is, my new ski hat to go with the fair isle mittens I will get back to by fighting the urge to cast-on two more balls of this discounted yarn to have another go at writing the pattern in blue and white...;)
BTW, I am using this project to teach a class on fair isle technique. I hope nobody asks for the hat recipe.
