Pitkerrie

Striking corrugated rib accentuates chevrons inspired by an elaborate stonework arch. The distinctive star- shaped crown, formed with differing decrease rates, is shown off in a simple beanie style hat with just a little slouch.

Woollenflower’s plant-dyed yarn, in two shades of indigo and natural white, is the perfect choice to complement this bold, geometric design. The woollen- spun yarn has a crisp handle but blooms beautifully on blocking.

Pitkerrie would also be a wonderful scrap-buster, with less than 100m / 110 yds of each shade needed, or can be worked in more colours.Finished circumference: 50 cm / 20 in
Length: 23.5 cm / 9.5 in
The hat is shown with 4 cm / 1.5 in negative ease.
