I knitted this hat a few weeks ago. It wasn’t for me, it was a request from a friend. I knitted it using local wool, grown by the Lleyn and Jacob sheep of my local biodynamic farm.
You may vaguely remember reading me talking about this hat around here before – in blog posts like this one – back when I was in the middle of knitting it.
I also made a little book to go with it, telling the story of this hat, from Fields… to Head!
Here it is:
This hat is called Thrift Hat, it was hand-knitted by me, following the pattern of Shetlander knitwear designer Outi Kater. Check her Ravelry designer page to discover more of her gorgeous fair isle designs!
