Snow Hats

My handmade hats have been keeping me and my brother’s heads cosy in the alps, and my mum’s been wearing a Gretel that she knit (need to get a photo of that actually, she used Rowan Tapestry and it’s really cute).

I made this cabled beanie with a visor as a last minute Christmas present on Christmas eve and even though I knew it was a popular style I was still a little surprised by how much he liked it. Which is just as well because he surprised me by giving me his old video I-pod.

This is my own design and I hope you like it as much as he does, the pattern is on my writing up list. It’s a long list but at least I feel like I’m actually working on it now so hopefully it will be available before too long.

Although I already have an enormous hat collection I couldn’t really find one that met my requirements of not falling off while snowboarding and keeping my ears warm. Plus I wasn’t sure about trying to sneak my metal circular needles through airport security, although I’ve done it before, and figured that no one could take issue with a wooden crochet hook. So of course I had to make a hat on the journey here. This is a pretty awful photo of me, but at least you can see the hat.

It’s really simple, based on this pattern with stripes and ear-flaps and a crab stitch edging. The yarn is, I think the Sublime merino angora blend, but I don’t have the ball bands with me here.

Eight weeks ago, as school closures were announced here in the UK, we made the decision to pause shipping physical goods until we'd had time to take stock and figure out how to continue. After a week or so we came back with a plan: to do a small update every Monday, cycling through our stock so that only a limited range would be available each week.
