Dave The Hat Pattern

From: FREE

This single pattern is available as a download.

For this pattern I used:

Yarn & Amounts (for the short version): One 100g hank of  WYS Bluefaced Leicester Aran – Undyed (100% Bluefaced Leicester wool, 166m/182yds per 100g) for shade A (shade 01 Natural Ecru) and One 50g ball of Kilcarra Tweed (100% Pure New Wool, 80m/87yds per 50g) for shade B (shade 4843 Muff).
The two strands of aran are held together when knitted.

Yarn & Amounts (for the long version): One 50g ball each of Kilcarra Tweed in shade A (shade 4843 Muff) and shade B (shade 4582 Fintown).
The two strands of aran are held together when knitted.

Metres For Each Shade: 75m.

My Alternative Yarn Suggestions & Amounts: The Croft Shetland Colours Aran One 100g hank each in shade A and shade B.

Needles: 9mm.

Gauge (tension): 10 stitches and 18 rows to 10cm square over garter stitch with one strand of yarn A and one strand of yarn B together using 9mm needles.

Size: To fit average size head.

My design ideas and advice:  This is a great quick and simple knit, a great project for beginners or a quick weekend project for experienced knitters who need a moment or two of pure simple stitches. For experienced knitters it’s great for using up yarn from your stash, you can combine your stash yarn with one ball of KIlcarra Tweed, treat yourself to a new shade for using up oddments!
The long version using all the  two 50g balls up so if you wanted to add a pompom then this needs additional yarn. I designed Davina, a simple scarf with it’s ends sew together to make a cowl in the same way!
