I say “ish” because it still needs a good, firm blocking. And I may swap out the tassel for a pompom. Oh, and there are about 10,000 ends left to weave in.
Still having trouble grappling with how long it took to knit this. It’s just a hat, for pity’s sake! A tall hat, in tiny tiny stitches. (I got gauge on size 0 needles.)
This hat has also convinced me that I have no actual interest in knitting “real” Fair Isle. That’s where the background color changes every few rows. (And in this pattern, the foreground color does, as well.) For those who enjoy knitting it, that’s awesome, more power to ya. I do not.
But hey, I enjoy knitting intarsia, which is most people’s least favorite technique. Maybe every knitter can only handle one of those.
