Two ladies and a whole lotta wool
Today I finished my second ever knitted hat! Knitted with one ball of beautiful Orkney Angora 50/50 DK yarn, which comes in a variety of beautiful colours.
I knit this hat on a small 4mm UK circular needles, starting off in rib and then working in knit in the round to produce stockinette. Decrease at the end and a simple finish by effectively tying the final stitches together. Pattern Peony by Vala, purchased in K1 yarns in Edinburgh.
So me and the Canadian now have matching hats, the crafty equivalent of wax jackets and Sunday walks with the dog.
I reckon each hat has taken me around 10 hours of knitting, this is because I’m quite slow with rib (hoping to pick up the pace with this final hat though).
Each ball of wool came in at just under £10 and I personally think it’s worth it for the quality of the hat in the end. That and it’s SO freaking soft!
