I made the hat to match the jacket but it can also stand alone and will look beautiful with your chosen outfit. It is entirely worked in the round in Hebridean 2 Ply. I created a textured stranded colour pattern for the brim of the hat and worked the crown in a textured geometric pattern in Pebble Beach. Once knitted, the hat is then strategically embroidered around and within the geometric patterning of both brim and crown patterns. The decorative orb on the top is knitted, embroidered and then felted. This is an ideal small project with which to practise textured stranded knitting, embroidery and felting. The yarn pack includes enough yarn for the embroidery and felted orb in the colours as shown.
When the UK lockdown was announced on Monday 23rd of March we took the strong advice of health and scientific experts and made the decision to pause orders and deliveries from the Virtual Yarns website. However safe we can make our workplace, we cannot send packages without involving delivery workers both here and at the point of destination. At this key time we need to play our part in reducing physical contact and closing temporarily is the most responsible way to achieve that. When circumstances allow we will re-open for orders.
