I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before- but a lot of times I won’t use a fairisle pattern because of the long floats.(and I do know ways to control them- but don’t always have the patience) I usually check the back pages to see the charts to determine if that pattern will work for the item I am knitting. I did notice that a lot of the weaving patterns have many more needles in work, close together.
I have used a few weaving patterns now, in a fairisle mode- putting the “weaving” yarn as the main. It works quite well for what I am making - texting mitts where you don’t want fingers getting caught.
I wonder if I’m the only one who never thought of this before!

My eye catches Faire Isle designs these days. Your hat is lovely. No wonder you like it. It looks perfect to me. I hope my first attempt is worth showing.
