Akin (adj) of similar character

Inspired by journeys and wanderings, family days out exploring and the joy of soothing simple stitches. The act of making is something that fills my heart with joy and I love nothing more than to share that joy with those I love, keeping them cosy and warm on our adventures.

Akin is the perfect opportunity to learn some new knitting tricks and play with colour, while wrapping those you love in the warmth of wool.

The pattern is written to work with four different gauges meaning you can use anything from a sport weight to aran. Mix and match colours to create a bold statement, opt for tonals for a more muted look or grab a gorgeous gradient yarn and watch the colour shift unfold. The possibilities are endless.

Available in seven sizes from itty bitty newborn to adult large means hats for everyone!
