Snow Blossom is a quick-to-knit hat featuring a simple Fair Isle flower border. Originally designed as a baby hat for my youngest daughter Emma, the pattern evolved to include five sizes: baby, toddler, child, women's small and women's large. The straight-forward decreases and narrow Fair Isle border make this a great pattern for those trying their hands at stranded knitting for the first time. Snow Blossom is knit a sport-weight yarn. The hat is knit from the brim up on a circular needle, with double pointed needles used when decreasing to shape the top.
