FO; Dollheid Tam

Pattern; Dollheid Tam by Kate Davies
Yarn; Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift in Mooskit, Raspberry & Peacock
Needles; 3 mm circular
I thoroughly enjoyed knitting this hat; the slightly rough and sticky yarn works so well for stranded colourwork.
There is something very satisfying about corrugated ribbing.
I am so thoroughly pleased by this hat that I even love the inside stranding.The only modification I made was to add a lining around the inside of the headband in super-soft malabrigo laceweight leftovers.As much as I loved knitting this pattern, I can admit that it's a little too girlie for me to wear, so it will be a gift.
I just hope the recipient likes to wear it as much as I liked knitting it!

  2. It's a brave knitter who shows the reverse side of a project! Wow, love it - and especially the little malabrigo brim, what a stroke of genius :)

  3. Thank you ladies! It's easy to love even the wrong side of such a lovely pattern
