This is my all time favourite knitted hat pattern, in wool that I love!
If you have knit with wool from Noro before, you will completely understand why…. the choice of colours and feel of the wool is just wonderful! Read more
This was a fun project to make and looks beautiful when finished – it also serves as a fun way of recycling scraps of fabric…. I took great pleasure in using the leftovers from the Tooly-Tool Holder Easel I made earlier this week!
