The Astrid hat takes its name and inspiration from Swedish children’s author Astrid Lindgren whose works lit up my childhood.

Taking my cue from Lindgren’s books, the hat is whimsical and bold - but it would still warm your ears in a Swedish snow storm.

The hat uses three colours of a warm double-knitting yarn and a playful pompom on top. Sizing modification tips are included in the pattern.

The Astrid hat is a companion to the Lindgren mitts pattern. Anyone wanting to knit a matching set will get a £1 discount applied at the checkout.
