“Da quaarl hat”

Quaarl is a Shetland dialect word for the crown of your head where the hair grows in a circular pattern. It has been said that people with two quaarls are lucky! In traditional Shetland knitting there are many crown designs that have been passed down through generations, this hat features my version of one of them.

This pattern includes traditional Shetland/Nordic patterns in gentle muted colours that reflect Shetland winter landscape. I would recommend using 100% Shetland wool for best results, the ultimate in keeping you warm in winter!

The pattern is one size adult but the actual size can be changed quite dramatically using larger or smaller needle sizes.
Please pay particular attention to the required tension as my knitting tends to be tight.
