This festive little hat is inspired by Swedish Christmas decorations - hearts are a key feature of Swedish Christmas, be they in the shape of gingersnaps, or made of paper to hang on the tree. However, it can of course be worn to other times of the year, or as a token of love for someone special !
It is a quick and simple beanie style hat that features a cosy folded-over brim and a heart motif in easy colourwork.
It is knit in the round using DK weight Faroese Snaeldan 100% wool yarn.
A quick yet impressive knit to make as a present...for you or for someone else!
Kit contains 1 x 100gr of Snaeldan DK natural and 1 x 50gr of Snaeldan DK dyed colour, as well as the pattern instructions.
This colourway is inspired by Swedish Dammsugare (Hoover) cakes - small chocolate pastries covered in green marzipan and with the ends dipped in melted chocolate. The hat shown is a shorter, non-slouchy version compared to the original Driftwood/Red, but you will find instructions for both in the kit.
Alternative colours are available on request - just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
To make the hat, you will also need some circular or double pointed needles in 3mm for the rib and 4mm for the main body of the hat, as well as a darning needle for finishing.
