A cosy knit to get the ball rolling…

Well, the leaves are turning, the morning air has a distinct chill and the nights are drawing in…

That can only mean one thing around here – new hats! Chris was keen to acquire a nice  cosy Peruvian style ‘ear flap’ hat ready for chilly days on the allotment I had just the yarn in mind… I had a hunt around for a suitable pattern and came up with a wonderful free pattern from Interweave Knits ‘Cover your Ears‘ collection.

Peruvian Ear Flap Hat

The yarn is Artesano Aran in Midnight, Maple & Twilight and it used less than a skein of the main colour (Midnight) and much much less than a skein of the other two shades. The boys are now demanding smaller scale versions for themselves so the colourways will be switched accordingly to use the remainder up!
