As the weather is still cold and we have had more snow (it didn't last till this morning though) I thought I'd treat myself to a hand knitted hat in a gorgeous colour.
I chose this Debbie Bliss Ralto Aran as it is 100% Merino wool and feels lovely and soft. I sometimes find wool itchy but this is not going to be a problem :o)
I have found a lovely pattern in issue 10 of Yarn Forward magazine and the pattern is called Cecile. The pattern in the magazine isn't correct but the errata can be found on the link I've provided. Good Old Ravelry!
I'm hoping that it won't actually need as much as two balls of wool, so I will be able to make another for someone else!
