I’m really pleased to have finished my first Fair Isle knitting project, and I think it turned out wonderfully. Here’s a shot of the crown.

Such a beautiful design! I wanted a slouchy beret kind of look rather than a close-fitting cap so I’m blocking it over a dinner plate. Some of the flowers are a bit stretched but I hope this will give the effect I’m going for.

The hat is slightly baggier than I had intended but this will be great for winter when I often want to tuck all my hair away when it’s cold and wet. Here I am modelling with my signature weird facial expression.
