Another FO. Another Wellington Hat. This is the third Wellington Hat I have knit. So the pattern must be EXCELLENT right? RIGHT! 'Specially as I don't ever knit a pattern more than once.It works so well with Noro Kureyon - those lovely blended colour changes set off the simple fairisle design to perfection. This one is a presi for Sal, from the Teignbridge Canoe Club.

And thinking ab0ut hats - I've ordered Woolly Wormhead's Going Straight. Can't wait.


Update, 6th March: Gave the hat to its intended recipient and it fit! She seemed really pleased with it :-)

I love the hat - the colours are lovely. Just read your post about becoming an NCT teacher. I loved my NCT classes - I bet it is a very rewarding thing to do. Although your day job is probably rewarding enough for one person!

That is a super hat. Where's the pattern from please?

The pattern is from Cabin Fever - A Canadian Company here:

It's not a free pattern but they send it very quickly and the cost is not unreasonable.
It's a very quick knit.

Gorgeous hat. I'm in the midst of crocheting a bunch of scarves. I'm using chunky yarn and simple stitches which means I am actually finishing a project. Some days I want to learn to knit and other days I say I already have too many hobbies. I need to finish with scarves before winter ends, anyway.
