I saw these hats at Target. They also had gloves and scarves in the same style.
And I was like "That's just FairIsle backwards! How easy"
I don't know what it is but there are an awful lot of winter accessories this year that are so simple a beginning knitter could do them.
Maybe not this hat I mean but other things.
SO Step 1 of what I did.
I turned it inside-out took, out the tag and folded the button placket over and sewed it down. This made the sides a little uneven but not much
And the finished sweater. It fits really well now. I didn't cut the excess off but because the arms of the sweater were so large to begin with the extra bulk doesn't bother me much.
My mother claims it just looks like a sweater turned inside out But I really like it. I hope it doesn't look too badly?
