This is Gia. Isn't she adorable?

Knitting specs:

Pink Fair Isle baby tam, 8-inch blocked diameter, color combination of pink, black, and white. Knit with Jamieson & Smith brand yarn, 100% Shetland wool, 2-ply jumper weight. Knit on Addi Turbo brand metal circulars (only because I cannot source my favorite Hotz & Stein ebony woods in the sizes required).

Pattern designed by me.

Here's the basic pattern:

With a 12 inch metal circular, 2.0mm, cast on 112 sts and k2, p2 for one good inch of ribbing.

Switch to 16-inch metal circular, 3.0mm, and rapidly increase to 155 total sts.

K in solid pink for half an inch.

Now work your favorite Fair Isle motif for two inches.

Reduce now in your favorite way, such as the six-pointed star motif that I've used, with double decreases at the star points, decreasing every other row.

Good luck!
