I'm going to start a blog on knitting mittens in January and some mittens will be fair isle. I've done very little fair isle knitting so I thought I'd start by making some two color baby hats for practice. I used this Ravelry pattern. I had trouble at first and made lots of mistakes which meant I had to rip out sections and re-knit, sometimes more than once. It took me almost 8 hours to knit the first hat, but now I can knit them in half the time. I used partial skeins of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino yarn and I'm thinking of making some hats using a variety of colors using scraps. They will fit babies 3-6 months.
These will be going to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
