Expand your knowledge of Fair Isle to create this gorgeous diagonally striped cloche

A combination of clever colourwork and a slip stitch pattern guarantee that this colourful cloche from Amanda Walker will look great and keep your head warm every time you wear it.

The repeating pattern is easily memorised – and with the project being small enough to take on the move it's an ideal travelling project, whether it's one long journey or the daily commute.
