Rose of the North is knit using the Fair Isle or stranded colourwork technique. The main motif is inspired by traditional Fair Isle designs and represents a rose inside of a snowflake. I chose brighter, colours as a break from tradition and to give this hat a modern look.

If you’re new to stranded colour work, just make sure that you strand the unused colours to the back of the work, loosely.
