Decreasing and Finishing Your Fair Isle Hat!

 

Hi Everyone! Welcome back! We've made it!

 

Today we are finishing our hats! If you aren't there yet, don't worry, we will keep this class up for a really long time. This last class is jam packed! You may want to refer back to it when you're doing other projects because of the blocking information.

I really had a great time creating this class for you and I am so grateful for all your enthusiasm! Thank you for supporting Cream City Yarn and knitting along!

See you in the store!

-Cait
