She’s that gorgeous friend you love to bits. You’ve done Big Stuff together.

You finish each other’s sentences, know what makes each other smile and you buy the same shoes without realising. She’s just like a sister but you’re not related. She’s your sister from another mister.

Heather and I met when we were 3. We’ve been friends for ever and yes, we’ve bought exactly the same thing soooo many times without realising, including the same shoes.

We’re both the eldest, both have a boy then three girls and when we’re together we spend a lot of time nodding, laughing and talking non-stop.

Special friendships are for cherishing and what could be more perfect than a colourful hat each to celebrate our connection?

Sister From Another Mister includes two different hat designs in the one pattern. They’re similar and use the same weight yarn, but they’re not the same.

Both hats will fly off your needles and they’re both simple to master for even beginner colourwork knitters.

The pattern is mostly charted in clear, colourful charts that can also be printed in black & white. It has links to handy tutorials, and includes a colouring-in page so you can plan your perfect colour combos.

Great for stash busting and using small amounts of plump DK or worsted-weight yarn, Sister From Another Mister hats are made for treasured friends.

To fit head sizes Small Medium, Large 18-20 (21-22, 23-24)”/
45.5-51 (53.5-56, 58.5-61) cm.

19 sts x 26 rnds = 4”/10 cm in stockinette stitch after blocking, knitted in the rnd with US 7/4.5 mm needles.
Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain gauge.
