Super Quick Fair Isle Crochet Beanie
"I’m so ready for cold weather months! I can’t wait to start cuddling up with blankets, hunkering down with warm mugs, and most of all, bundling up in hats and sweaters. Fair Isle in crochet is a relatively new art, as it’s traditionally done in knitting, but it’s such a beloved classic look that easily fits into your cold-weather wardrobe. I love this hat because the motifs incorporated into the background are simple yet unique. I love the pink and white, but you can easily make this hat in any colors you choose!"
