This kit makes either a folded brim hat, or a hat with a little slouch and a pom pom. Both cosy, ribbed hats have simple, meandering cables for texture like a swirling tide.

The kit is suitable for someone who wants to try out easy cables or for more confident knitters who want some straightforward TV/pub/travelling knitting.

The yarn in the kit is 100% Shetland wool, in aran weight, in the colourway 'Turning Tides'- softly graded stripes in sea colours of blues, teals and charcoal.

The underlying rib pattern of the hats make them very stretchy, to fit most adult hats. 

Techniques used include: knitting in the round, cast on, knit, purl, knit 2 together and cable. The patterns give both written and charted instructions.


The kit includes:

100g skein of Wild Shetland 100% Shetland wool yarn in shade 'Turning Tides'

Printed pattern for both hats

French bulb safety pin stitch marker

Just add:

4.5mm needle/s for knitting in the round (I use a 40cm circular and work the crown on double pointed needles but you could work the whole hat either on double pointed needles or on a circular needle using the magic loop method).

Cable needle

Wool needle for sewing in the ends


Please note, this listing is a kit and not the finished hat/s. Each kit includes enough yarn to make one hat. The listing doesn't include the mitts, or the apples, which I ate ages ago.
