Recently, my girls were introduced to a new website for those who love knitting, Ravelry.com. It’s a place to share patterns and connect with suppliers of yarn, patterns and notions. My girls now have a circle of their knitting friends there with which they connect, share ideas, and send fun notes to each other.
Hannah found this delightful pattern, Pferde-Mütze, by German writer Pim Roth, and made a wool version for a friend. Here is a link to her free pattern chart. Even if you do not speak German or knit, it is worth it to take a look at Pim’s website.
Hannah found the wool yarn she preferred through Mary Lue’s Yarn & Ewe in Mankato.
The yarn is Rustic Tweed by Queensland, which contains 63% Wool, 27% Alpaca and 10% Donegal.
I suppose I like this hat so much because it brings back memories of my childhood, horsing around.
