This could be one of our all-time favorite Lisa Hoffman hat designs. 

The “Snowflake Hat”, made from our softest than soft String Classica cashmere is not only the most elegant looking Fair Isle hat, but it’s a great first fair isle in the round project. 

This design was created for Lisa’s students in her Directed Knitting group. The instructions are written out very clearly. The pattern includes an accompanying chart in a large, easy to read scale. As a bonus, this hat does not require any shaping! Work it up, close it with a seam or three needle bind off (your choice), put your pom-pom on and you’re done! This hat could not be easier. 

The fun part is choosing the palette; three colors create a great contrast and pop! A bit of color always brightens up a winter’s day. As you can see, no matter what color combo you choose, this hat looks fantastic!!
