FO #4 - Sweetheart Hat

Yesterday I took a beginning fair isle class to learn how to knit with two colors in one project (for us, a hat).  It was an extremely quick knit, especially after the trap and wrap method finally clicked!

I had some tension issues at our class.  My hands were a little sweaty from being nervous, so I had problems knitting really tight so a couple of my first colorwork rows don't POP like they should.  Once I got home, my stitches got looser.  I have plenty of yarn left so I'll make a second one at some point.

Pattern:  Beginning Fair Isle Sweetheart Hat by Krafty1 Designs
Needles:  Size 8
Yarn:  Plymouth Encore Worsted - Colors 194 (Light Grey) and 598 (Dark Teal)
