This is a perfect hat for those cool fall days. It is a quick, easy knit and normally uses just one 50 g (1¾ oz) ball of yarn. It is a wonderful way to indulge yourself in some beautiful yarns.

The original hat is designed to snugly fit a large adult head. Included in the pattern is a variation on the design to fit either a medium or large adult head.

The main hat in the photos is made in Wellington Fibres 2-ply Worsted Spun, variegated purple colour.

Wholesale and store pricing is available upon request.
