This is a new pattern for my Basic Hats collection. The heart-shaped stitches of contrasting color make this hat look so joyful! They are accomplished with the use of the fair isle technique, which might seem a bit scary and complex from the first glance. But if you start learning it from something easy - like this hat - you’ll fall in love! Chunky yarn makes this knit really fast, and two-colored design gives endless possibilities for color combination. You can adjust the pattern to another yarn, change the size or length of the finished garment, add a pompom or skip this step (if someone can actually do that!). The pattern contains the video tutorial that makes the process more easy to understand.
