Breckenridge Fair Isle Hat

Pattern: Breckenridge Fair Isle Hat, by Country Pine Designs
Yarn: unknown (wool roving-like super bulky that was given to me to use for charity knitting)
Needles: US 15 / 10mm 16" circulars

The photos? That's what happens when you ask your husband to take one fast hat picture, and he starts acting like a high fashion photographer. "Strike a pose! You know you love the camera! Make them want it!" ... I swear, he's the best!

I've long been an admirer of Country Pine Designs. In a world that can sometimes feel oversaturated with super bulky items (I'm guilty of this myself), Kathleen stands out with her original designs and gorgeous photography. When she started selling patterns along with her finished knits, I knew I had to start knitting!

First on my list was the Breckenridge Fair Isle Hat. You can pick up the pattern both on Ravelry and on Etsy, and trust me when I tell you it's worth every penny. I've always struggled with just how long to make my super bulky hats, how to work the decreases, and just how much pattern is too much (or not enough) pattern for a hat made from yarn this thick

Kathleen takes all the guesswork out of it, and I ended up with a hat so perfect I've already got Zach convinced the two of us need to have matching red and white versions for Husker football this fall! And if I play my cards right, our friends (who we go to all the games with) will have some, also.

I'd like to say I've already earmarked all my super bulky stash for more of these hats, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to run out and buy more yarn as well ... my stash isn't going to last long with this pattern now in my possession!
