It’s a beautiful hat but not really my style so I am giving it away. If you want the hat, comment on the blog post, and tell me why you should have it, before november 11, 2012.

The pattern is SILO-PIPO by  Kauhavan Kangas-Aitta Oy, Laura Tuulia Rissanen/Jaana Huhtanen design, I used 0.9 skeins of Schachenmayr nomotta Alpaka premium (very soft) in forest green and knitted it on 4.0 mm needles. It is extremely stretchy and fit heads up to 60 cm (24″) (I have 56 cm (22″) if you want to compare with the picture).

    I just love this hat and am desperate for one to wear when I am walking the dogs on the beach. It gets very cold and windy here in Northern Ireland!bo

    It’s a beautiful hat. I’d knit it for me, and then my 15 yo daughter would take it, wear it, and call it her own (which makes me happy, too).
