Swimming in Scotland in the winter is chilly, and wearing a warm wooly hat really helps. Smerral was designed to reflect my love of cold water and icy dips, with the mosaic pattern echoing the ripples on the water.

The pattern requires 80 (90, 100) m / 90 (100, 110) yds heavy DK weight yarn, in two colours. It is recommended to chose a soft, warm yarn with a high wool content.
