Crofthoose Hat #2

And here is the second Crofthoose Hat.  For the wool, this time, I moved over to Jamieson's, the other wool company in the Shetlands.  Even though the names are close, Jamieson & Smith and Jamieson's are not the same company.  It's a coincidence that they are so similar, and I'm sure that it confusing to some.  I was for me for quite a while.  I'm just thrilled that there are two companies with wool that is interchangeable - so many color choices.

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
