Class Description: Fair Isle knitting is a stranded knitting method of working with multiple colors to create a patterns. We will be knitting a hat – Lucerne by Jared Flood. This is a great project for learning how to manage the yarns and getting your tension correct. This hat can be knit in 2, 3 or 4 colors depending on your skills and preferences. It is a unisex hat that has options for a beanie or slouchier hat.

 Material Needed:
  • Brooklyn Tweed Peerie — 100% American Merino Wool (210 yards/50 grams) 1 skein of Color 1 (C1); 1 skein of Color 2 (C2)
    optional: 1 skein of Color 3 (C3); 1 skein of Color 4 (C4)
    Two-color version: 153 yards C1; 60 yards C2
    Three-color version: 157 yards C1, 23 yards, C2; 23 yards C3
    Four-color version: 120 yard C1; 37 yards C2; 14 yards C3; 10 yards C4
    Note: Pattern requires at least two colors and can optionally use up to four. C3 is for the 3 and 4 color
    versions and C4 is for the 4 color version

Gauge is 28 stitches & 32 rounds = 4″ in colorwork motif with Size A needle(s), after blocking

  • Needles:
    • Size A (for Main Fabric)
      One 16″ circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed       Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US# 5)
    • Size B (for Ribbing) One 16″ circular needle* three or four sizes smaller than Size A.
      Suggested Size: 2¾ mm (US# 2)
    • Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only)
      One 16″ circular needle* one size smaller than Size B
      Suggested Size: 2¼ mm (US 1)
      *32″ circular needle can be used instead of 16” circular and DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for
      working small circumferences in the round.
      Note: The body of the hat is a combination of stranded (2-color) rounds and single-color rounds. Some
      knitters do not get the same stitch gauge on the same needle between their colorwork and single-color
      knitting. If this is the case, you may wish to switch to an alternate needle size on single-color rounds to
      maintain the 7 stitches per inch gauge required for the pattern.
  • Other notions:
    • Stitch markers
    • tapestry or darning needles
    • waste yarn (only if working a tubular cast on)
