Mothers.
Strong, caring, inspiring.

The pattern is the Icelandic word móðir (e. mother) in bindrunes, made from the runic alphabet used in Iceland until the 14th century.

Size
Fits head circumference ca. 50 - 56 cm / 19.75 - 22 inches

Yarn
Ístex Léttlopi, Icelandic wool, 50 gr. / 100 m skeins.
Main color: 1 skein*
Contrast color: 1 skein
* NB! When test knitting the hat there were only about 6 grams left of the main color so those who knit loosely should have a little extra. There is nothing worse than running out of yarn with just a few rows left.

4.5 mm (US 7) circular needle, 40 cm / 16”

Pom-pom is totally optional; homemade from yarn or store-bought - whatever you fancy.
