#Fair Isle Friday Series {week 1}

Have you guys jumped on the Fair Isle Crochet train yet? This stitch is super special to me. It’s the stitch that pushed me to publish my 1st ever crochet pattern. I stumbled upon the center single crochet stitch this past summer. I searched EVERYWHERE for a hat pattern & found nothing. So being the DIYer that I am, I came up with my own pattern.
