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.
