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,

  • Adorable twitchy nose, cute little feet - but don't be fooled - this cheeky fella has eaten every single pea I planted in the greenhouse - no wonder his coat looks so glossy!
#girlgardener #ediblegarden #organicgardener #permaculture #forestgarden #growyourownfood  #slowliving One of the most  precious gifts you'll get in life is a best frend. Flowers from the garden - even in January! Last year I set myself a goal, to have flowers from the garden every week of the year. January it seems is easy - winter flowering clematis and viburnum doing a great job of cheering up the utility room today! Gardens are about feeding the soul, not just food for the table.
#cuttinggarden #flowergarden #permaculture #forestgarden #girlgardener #makingwinter #winterstories Last Saturday morning, Allonby. Wish every weekend could start with a walk on the beach, the winter light is so beautiful! 
Today I shall mostly be blocking crochet swatches, baking bread (my "signature" spelt  sourdough) & trying to book an Easter holiday! Whatever you have planned, be happy my Instagram friends xxx
#slowliving #winterstories #notjustlakes #morningslikethese #seekthesimplicity In the greenhouse, in the dark - clearing up and making room for this year's veg :So good to be getting dirt under my fingernails!
#girlgardener #growyourownfood  #organicgardener #ediblegarden #permaculture #forestgarden Hellebores, I love their delicate flowers and "barely there" shades of pink and couldn't resist bringing a few into the house today.  I'm slowly dealing with the pile of work on my desk, answering emails and doing one task at a time! 
Living with chronic illness is challenging and frustrating, but  slowing down and make the most of each day is a lesson I needed to learn!
