This hat sits comfortably and snuggly on the head and is soft and very warm.
When I designed this hat, I drew my inspiration from the seed heads of the wild carrot plant, also known as the beautiful “Queen Anne’s Lace”.
I wanted to use thick natural wool for extra warmth and comfort. While this hat will keep you warm in winter it is also a gentle reminder that nature goes in full circles and new life will emerge from the seeds which dropped to the ground.
The wool is stretchy, so blocking will allow for slight size adjustments. The hat fits an average woman’s head nicely. Going up a needle size above gauge will make the hat larger.
I used ~35g / 77m of each colour.
