Lofty Hat

Love bringing you wee updates like this one, and this time it's about my new Lofty Hat which has appeared in Knit Now this month! :)

It's knit in the round, bottom to top.  Simple chunky cables are great if you're learning or an easy knit if you're not.  

I particularly love the way the lofty loops come together to run toward the centre, and from the top it reminds me of icy rain drops beading down autumn branches.  

For this hat, Knit Now suggested some excellently airy, singles spun, alpaca blend from Yeoman yarns (Yeoman Yarns Kajam Alpaca Aran) - I didn't have very much experience with this yarn; it was floooofy!  Perfect for this project.

Let me know if you're knitting the hat!  I'd love to have a peek at your projects :)  Also, considered a wee knit-along of my hats on Ravelry?  Happy to volunteer some pattern prizes if anyone is keen!

Did you see the third episode of the Great British Bake Off?  Who knew bread could be so exciting?!  Never imagined I'd be sat on the edge of my armchair shouting egg glaze advice at the TV (yes, I'm one of those people who argues with the television).

I've been lovingly informed that I should 'bake bread like that' for dinner this weekend...

2 sleeps.
If you know, you know.
Do you know?



  1. Would be certainly interested in. KAL. The hat v nearly got castes on this week using some WYS Bluefaced Leicester I have but I will be magic looping it and needed the cable for another KAL I'm starting on 1st September. Talk about a clash!

    1. Cool! We could always do one in October/November...
