Pattern Description:

A friend of mine wanted this Pakul (also spelled Pakol or Khapol, from the Khowar language of Chitral) a soft, round-topped mens' hat, typically of wool and found in any of a variety of earthy colors: brown, black, gray, or ivory. Before it is fitted, it resembles a bag with a round, flat bottom. The wearer rolls up the sides nearly to the top, forming a thick band, which then rests on the head like a beret or cap. After looking everywhere online for a pattern and not finding one I set about designing one. This has been a popular patten.

When I was a wee girl of 8 I sat next to my grandmother and learned my first skill, knitting.. From there it has grown into an obsession.

And now a lifestyle
