The hat is being modelled, this time, by my daughter, Jessica, and my 10-month-old granddaughter, Alyssa.
Pattern: Crofthoose Hat
By Ella Gordon
Free pattern for Shetland Wool Week 2016
The pattern is free.
Yarn: All Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift. Someone on Ravelry knit the hat in a colorway that appealed to me, so I copied her choices, except for one. She had a very bright Fuschia in the mix and I changed to a slightly more subtle Ginger. I stuck to using five colors as in the pattern.
Sky #130 - light blue
Atlantic #150 - blue
Sand #183 - beige
Cardinal #323 - red
Ginger #462 - red/orange
Needles: US #2-1/2/3.0 mm and US#4/3.5mm - double points
