It feels like this hat has been on the needles for ages, and I’m not sure why because it’s a delight to knit.
When Painted Woolly Toppers was released this was one of my favourite designs – and I’m already considering colour options for version 2.
There’s something about this hat which reminds me of a sea urchin.
A look at the way the panels curve away from the brim.
This is knitted in 4ply British Wool and nylon in the meadow colourway. I’m very tempted to try a version in bold self striping yarn as I think the stripes will work beautifully.
