As the last colourful leaves fall from the trees and Autumn blusters its way into Winter, the need for a cosy woolly hat is growing day by day.
The Houndstooth Hat in Simple Colour Knitting will certainly be my hat of choice this season – a basic beanie shape with a rolled edge brim and knitted in a bold two-colour houndstooth pattern using the simple ‘stranding’ technique. And don’t forget to top it off with an impressive two-colour pom pom for maximum impact!
Traditional plaids are always on trend for Autumn / Winter but this bold and playful check is fun and modern and a quick and easy way to update your outerwear. Choose bright colours of maxi wool, or keep it chic with a sophisticated monochrome palette.
This project would make a perfect quick-knit Christmas gift too!
