"Traditional yarns have a special place in my heart,” says designer Rosee Woodland. “Tweedy, sticky wools are soft but durable. Cared for carefully, anything made in them should last you a lifetime and the colours are stunning.” Rosee has chosen shades from JC Rennie that are flecked with warm heather and grass tones, in a gently slouchy beret shape. There should be plenty left over from making the hat to create simple matching wristwarmers, mittens, or even a cowl.
This colourful hat is 24cm deep and 49cm circumference, unstretched. It should fit a head circumference up to 60cm. You'll find all of our knitting abbreviations here.
