This was the official pattern for Shetland Wool Week 2015, an event held every year in Shetland to celebrate Shetland wool and it’s associated crafts.
This was originally a free pattern during the time I was Patron of Shetland Wool Week to promote the event, but it is now available to purchase from my Ravelry store.
It is knitted in Shetland Aran weight yarn at a fairly tight gauge making a warm and cosy hat, good for keeping your ears warm in the Shetland wind!
It is a quick knit and it makes an ideal introduction to Fair Isle / colour work knitting.
