SEASON'S GREETINGShat

The end of the year is the gift knitting season. SEASON’S GREETINGS was designed to be a quick and rewarding project that you will want to make over and over. It features a classic fair isle snowflake motif that only uses two colors per round and will look stunning in almost every color combination.

I had so much fun experimenting with different colors on this pattern that I knit three hats in a row. SEASON’S GREETINGS really is an addictive knit that will impress none knitting friends and family. Since this pattern comes in three sizes you are able to make one for all your loved ones.
