Castlelaw

Winter can be cold and bleak, the wind whipping around as you bundle yourself up in as many layers as possible and head out of the front door. As you pull the door closed behind you, your ears feel the chill and you duck back inside to grab your trusty hat.

Castlelaw is cosy and warm, worked in snuggly aran weight yarn, with added length so you can pull it down over your ears and snuggle away from the icy wind.

Worked from the brim to the crown, this hat features a simple but striking twisted stitch cable and a sprinkling of eyelets adds interest without detracting from the warmth of this cosy yarn.
