Wow, I am completely overwhelmed by the amazing response to the release of Abbye Hat and Cardigan. Abbye Hat went to #1 in the Hot Right Now list yesterday and I couldn’t be more delighted. Thank you all. Abbye Hat has been downloaded over a thousand times since it was released. The hat is free with purchase of Abbye Cardigan.


Victoria at Eden Cottage Yarns was so generous with yarn support for the Abbye cardi that there was enough left over to make a hat to match. It’s a simple beanie with no shaping.

The cable panel is worked on the front and back of the hat, and is off-centre.
