I’ve often thought that it would make sense to take inspiration from our Northern neighbours when it comes to making yarn from the fibre of our ancient sheep breeds. This yarn from Irish producer S Twist does just that, blending naturally coloured Galway, Jacob and Shetland fibres into a loose single ply that will be familiar to anyone who has worked with Icelandic lopi. It seemed only fitting to design a pattern inspired by the geometric colourwork yokes of Icelandic Lopapeysas.

Sport weight wool yarn.

26 sts and 29 rnds = 4” / 10cm in charted stranded colourwork pattern with larger needle.

Size US 4 / 3.5mm 16” / 40cm circular

Size US 5 / 3.75mm 16” / 40cm circular and dpns or preferred needles for working small circumferences in the rnd

Finished circumference: 17[18½, 20, 21½, 23]” / 43[47, 50, 54, 58]cm

The hat is worked from the bottom up with decreases incorporated into the colourwork pattern, as it is on those yokes, creating a particularly appealing crown pattern. There are a few rounds using three colours, which can be tricky, but take them slowly and I think you’ll find the resulting blending of shades is worth it.
