Designer’s Tip: “It’s quite difficult to count rows and see where you have increased or decreased stitches in the furry yarn, so I would suggest you write down each row as you work to avoid losing your place.”

Magazine’s Tip: “The faux fur yarn is wonderfully soft and cuddly, but it is hard to see your stitches, so work slowly and carefully in good light. You might also find it easier to sew up your pieces using a smooth yarn but in a similar color.”

Hat is 19 cm long.
