Kit - Fair Isle Cap


Kit - Fair Isle Cap

Inspired by textiles from the Shetland Museum & Archives Collection, inspiration of Jamieson & Smith's Shetland Heritage range of yarn.

 

 

 

This kit contains the yarn and pattern to knit the Fair Isle Cap. We have had reports of people running low on the Auld Gold in the kit so we have added an extra ball.

 

 

 

You will also need:

 

- 1 set 2.75mm *Uk 12/US 2) double-pointed needles (DPNs) or your preferred needles for knitting small diameters in the round

 

- Small quantity of waste yarn - preferably a smooth cotton, to avoid felting with the main yarn

 

- 2 pieces of cardboard or a pompom maker
