This hat was born in a school rush, well lots of them. The kids school situated in a rural village with a small car park. Any parent who does not wish to walk some distance to school must arrive early to car park and wait a good 15-20 minutes for the gates to be open. For me this is a pure knitting time and many projects grew like so. By the way the shawlette is Ishbel -such a usefull and pretty little shawl, I may knit a nother one in a lace weight..
I used an easy beautiful rib pattern by Kim Hargreaves- Tod. The yarn is one of my favourites- rowan baby alpaca dk. Its a gorgeous turquoise colour that no longer available. I grabbed 3 balls in the John Lewis sale couple of years ago so this hat is a stash buster.
Remember this hat I've knitted my sister? Well the hat reached its destination and the recipient looks stunning in it :)
