The Westerly is named for the winds that regularly batter Folkestone's coastline.
It is a Corriedale super chunky weight yarn kit with a simple ribbed fold over brim to keep your ears warm, a smooth stocking stitch crown and optional instructions to make a giant fluffy pompom topper. It would make a great gift for someone who has just picked up the knitting bug, or for someone who just wants an easy, relaxing knit to do in front of the TV. All yarn is 100% corriedale British wool naturally dyed with quality ingredients and mordanted (fixed to the fibre) with mineral extracts.
Skill Level: Suitable for beginners. The skills needed to complete this hat are casting on, knit and purl, knitting in the round and simple decreases. Written instructions are given with an added 'Techniques' section for instructions you may be unfamiliar with.
Sizes: Small 16" (41cm), Medium 19" (48cm), Large 20" (51cm). Measurements are taken before the hat is stretched over the head to ensure a nice snug fit.
The Kit contains:
2 x 50g skeins of hand dyed pure corriedale super chunky yarn (colours selected by you from drop down options)
1 set of 8mm circular needles (40cm long - the perfect size for knitting this hat)
A written pattern booklet.
2 x 'Herman Cat' stitch markers to mark the start/end of the round.
1 x XL plastic sewing needle for weaving in ends/attaching pompom.
You may choose to purchase the following separately from other listings in this shop: Faux Fur pompom for top, 8mm double pointed needles for when decreases make the round very small.
