baa-ble hat

The 2015 Shetland Wool Week pattern is now available! The Baa-ble Hat designed by this years patron Donna Smith features a wide brim, lovely sheep motifs and a snowy sky, very appropriate to Shetland and most of the UK this week, I thought it was spring?? This hat is a great introduction to Fair Isle knitting and as its worked in Aran weight yarn it makes for a quick knit, great for keeping you warm in this chilly springtime!

The Jamieson & Smith colourway uses our Shetland Worsted Aran in the shades Peat, Coll Black, Silver Grey and Snaa White, and you can now buy a kit via our online shop here. If you would like different shades for your baa-ble hat just order two of your main shade and one each of your contrast shades. You also use our now discontinued Shetland Aran which we still have a number of shades available. For that yarn you will only need one ball of the 4 shades.

To get the pattern you will need to apply for it here on the Shetland Wool Week website and then you will be emailed a copy of the pattern.

Ill be back later this week to carry on out yarn series, til then Happy Knitting!

    I would really like to knit the Baa-ble Hat for my granddaughter. I found the hat on Ravelry, filled out the form (twice now) on the Shetland Week site, but still have not received any info. Please let me know how I can obtain the pattern.
    Thank you. eifei@comcast.net
