Kaiya Mei Hat


I designed this pattern for a special baby girl named Kaiya Mei. This Fair Isle motif is intended to fade gradually and randomly from the first color to the second. I chose a multi-color yarn with a natural main color to soften the look, but I think two solid and contrasting colors would work great, too. Get creative!

This pattern includes a chart. However, given the random nature of the motif it is a forgiving pattern, so color mistakes are no biggie!
