A Winter Moose Hat

Well, I decided that I needed a break from the scarf. As fun as it is, it still moves pretty slowly. During my break, I decided on a project that will knit up pretty fast: a hat! I chose to make this fun Moose Fair Isle hat since it’s getting pretty cold outside. Here’s how it will look when I’m finished:

As I’ve been knitting it, I’ve realized that it’s more intarsia than fair isle as the gaps between colors are huge and a bit unwieldy. There are a ton of long strings inside since I wanted to avoid weaving in ends as much as possible:

I’m almost done with the moose portions so it shouldn’t be a problem after the next few rows. I’m just a bit worried since it’ll probably be a Christmas gift for someone. Even with these issues, it’s still a pretty cute hat!
