Laura’s Beanie, oringinally published in Cast On, the magazine of The Knitting Guild Association, is now available as an individual pattern download.
Named for a character in the PBS show Home Fires, this hat was inspired by the motifs and colors of vintage Fair Isle sweaters and vests from the 1940s. The pattern uses just four colors, and no decreasing is done in the patterned section, making it a good beginner Fair Isle project. It’s also a great way to use up those little bits of stash yarn, and with three sizes from Youth to Adult large, you can knit one for everyone you know!
