Keps!

Three more Fair Isle keps off the needles. 

Yarn: Rauma Finull


This is another Fishermans Kep, added more color  to the brim, and did the back side of the brim in a very soft yarn, so it wont itch. These long keps has button on the inside where the tassel is fastened, to give it some weight.


Left kep is Katies Kep.  
Button kep is Da Crofter,s Kep.
