A Weekend in the Country is a modern shaped hat with a classic design and traditional patterning, reminiscent of traditional plaid woollen fabrics.

Particularly suitable for both the modern gent and any stylish woman, whether about town or when going rambling.

Give a twist to the traditional design by using bright and bold colours, or use tweed style yarns for a more rustic look.

This pattern would make a perfect easy colourwork project due to the simple motifs. Only two colours are used for the stranded colourwork, and there are tips on alternative ways to work the third detail colour for maximum ease.

A fast and fun pattern, makes a fantastic quick gift and especially handy as a go-to pattern for those difficult-to-please members of the family.
