The Hutt Valley Hat uses a combination of stripes and a simple cabled stitch which makes it look far more complicated than it is. Each row uses just one single colour to knit. The pattern includes 2 crown options to choose from.
The pattern includes a chart, as well as written instructions. Instructions are also included for working the cable both with, and without a cable needle.
Extremely economical on yarn, this is a great project to use up remnant or leftover yarn. 2 skeins of Cascade 220 were enough to complete a woman's hat, a woman's pair of mitts and a child's pair of mitts, with yarn leftover!
Sized from Toddler to Man, this is a great pattern for all the family, and can be made in any combination of colours to suit.
A matching fingerless mitten pattern is coming soon(see last photo), and you can pre-purchase this now via the ebook. A download link will be emailed to you as soon as this is available - which will be no later than the 15th of December. This pattern will also be multi-sized.
The Hutt Valley hat is named for the area in which I live in, the Vs on the hat remind me of the Valleys I overlook from my house.

I am a knitter, and have been knitting obsessively for the past 4 years, although I learnt to knit as a small child. Pattern design is my new passion, I love the freedom to design patterns that I can't otherwise find!
