And for my next trick, I’ll do some Fair Isle knitting, two handed. 😉  Fair Isle color work is something that I’ve been wanting to learn for a while now, and I decided that this weekend was going to be the weekend for such an attempt.

Luckily, I had decided to practice continental knitting (I knit English, otherwise known as throwing) a while back, because to do color work like this, it is easier to knit one yarn continental, and the other english. It also helps to keep the yarn from getting tangled.

For this hat, the colored yarn was knit with my left hand, continental, and the black was knit english. It’s pretty amazing to watch. I’m kind of impressed with myself that I can knit with both hands at the same time. I feel like I have leveled up in knitting. 🙂

The *free* pattern is the Heartskull Pattern, by Siouxsie Stitches. The yarn is Red Heart Super Saver in Heartfelt and Black.ModernlyVintage.com Rainbow Heartskull Hat

I am in love with the way it turned out. Made this bad boy just for me. <3
