Ar milliún fáilte roimh

Winter knitting is well under way now, both gifts and stuff for me. I had plenty of the gorgeous 'Keepsake' yarn left over from the cowl and decided on a matching hat.

Any hat knitted in sock-weight yarn needs a bit of help to keep the ears toasty warm in winter. This hat has a 4" deep double-rib 'cuff' that is turned up to make a double layer where it is most needed.

Why the title? Both cowl and hat were named in celebration of the millionth member of Ravelry. And the translation? A million welcomes to you.

Details of the hat (and pattern details for those wanting to have a go) on my ravelry project  page.
