FAIR ISLE CROCHET/KNIT SNOW HEART CAP

As you can see on previous post, I published a pair of slippers with my new Snow Heart pattern

SNOW HEART SLIPPERS


Now I have designed the Snow Heart Cap with the same pattern, a more simple design, which make the approach to this super-fun technique easier available for everyone!

If you still have not tried to knit with your hook, I strongly recommend it!
The stitch has several names: Split Single Crochet (Ssc), Waistcoat Stitch, and Center Single Crochet (Csc). 

Also called Fair Isle Stitch, due to the perfect knit-look this stitch create, and the endless possibilities to work stranded, colored patterns with it. Just like in knitting!

HOW IS THIS STITCH DONE?


Insert the hook into the middle of the sc, between the two vertical "legs", tilt the hook slightly to the right, and the tip will find it's way through the st-loops.
See Annie's public video for how it's done, on the round, as well as forth and back.
Note that the most distinct knit-stitch will appear worked on the round.

SNOW HEART CAP:

I had to add the stamp "100% crochet, NOT Knit",
to avoid disappointed knitters!
Note the ribbing, worked with sideways sl sts.
