My contribution to the Knit Picks Creative Color 2016: Fair Isle Collection, the Deco Hat, is now available!
It really takes advantage of all the shades of color that you can choose in Palette.
When I was designing it I played with several different colorways, but ended up working my sample in nearly theÂ same colors Knit Picks chose.
Here’s all the details:
