Ravelry: Pull the wool over pattern by Espace Tricot

Pull the wool over

PULL THE WOOL OVER is a super simple hat with just the right amount of slouch. It’s knit with a speckled Hedgehog Fibres Merino Aran held together with a strand of Shibui Silk Cloud. The colourful yarn is fun and modern while the mohair/silk blend lends a touch of luxury and that essential fuzzy halo we love so much. The hat is topped off with a snap-on pompom that can be removed for washing. Collect a few of these pompoms in different colours to coordinate with your speckles and swap them…
