One of my favorite crochet technique is fair isle. So I created the Camden Hat using this fun technique! I love the results and I think you will too!
So, fair isle crochet is a technique that you can use to create pictures within your project. You only need to know the basic crochet stitches to learn this technique. Usually, you will find a graph of some sort within the pattern, to show you where to change colors. It is very similar to tapestry crochet but the difference is that you float your non-working yarn behind your stitches, instead of working over it. It’s definitely easier than it looks and doesn’t take long to master!
I used Knit Picks Brava Worsted and Knit Picks Chroma Worsted to create my Camden Hat. Brava Worsted is a really nice acrylic yarn with many color choices. It is also very affordable, which is another reason I love it. Chroma Worsted is a bit more expensive but comes in a fun variety of both self striping color combos and solid colors. It was fun to use the solid black for the main color and the self striping Chroma for the contrasting color!
This crochet pattern is rated intermediate on the difficulty level. Mostly because it is a learned technique, and being able to read a graph is helpful. The hat worked from the bottom up with the brim created first. Then you work the fair isle part and decrease at the top to close the hat. The pattern comes in sizes toddler, child and adult.
