My daughter gave me 3 balls of yarn and a fair isle hat pattern for my birthday in January. I don't do fair isle well; never get the tension right and it puckers. I looked at that yarn for 6 months. Finally decided to do the hat pattern as double knit. Using provisional cast on, I started with the patterns correct number of stitches, but did stockinette in color a, then one row of purl, then finished the brim using the same number of rows as color a. I then transferred the stitches from the provisional cast on onto the needle, a knit stitch, then a purl stitch until all stitches were paired. The knit stitches are the outside hat and the purl are the inside hat. Instead of carrying floats, I now purl the inside hat. I enjoyed the first hat so much, I did a second, making my own fair isle design- king's crown. The pictures show both sides of the hats. Look closely to see that the outside is the reverse of the inside.

Sounds pretty complicated, but great results, two hats in one! I don’t want to think about winter yet. But if I start now, with all the ravelling and re-doing ..........?

Great works. I looked on newest pictures to admire them side by side. I can see the black and gray one contrast. The other one seems to be on the same side for both pictures.
