Introducing the Ellie Hat

Ellie Hat pairI have just added another new pattern to my online Etsy and Ravelry stores. This elegant hat is so easy to make, a beginner could manage it with ease.

The yarn used in the product photos is Eden Cottage Yarns Langdale Aran, a beautifully soft 100% Merino yarn which available in an extensive range of colours. This pretty green reminded me of spring, which is when the hat was made. The adult version has a raised front treble row to form a textured brim.

Instructions are provided for newborn and adult size, for my DK version I simply followed the adult instructions.

Eden Cottage Yarns will be at Woolfest next weekend (27th and 28th June) and you’ll be able to see the hat on their stall and take a look at the beautiful range of yarn blends and colours hand dyed in Yorkshire. I’ll be at Woolfest too, just on Saturday this year, and I already have an extensive “wishlist”!

You can download the hat pattern from Etsy or Ravelry,
