Bankhead hat

Sorry for being so quiet in January. It's not that I haven't been crafting, I just haven't made the time to blog. Whilst my January socks are blocking, I wanted to share this simple knit with you. Inspired by Dan of Bakery Bears podcast who loves this pattern, I decided to distract myself from turning the heel of my socks and print off the Bankhead hat by Susie Gourlay which is a free download on Ravelry.

The pattern calls for worsted weight wool on size 7 needles so I bravely broke out some DK weight yarn by Fondant Fibre on their Yeats base and the colour is called Sonnet. I'm pleased to have finished it ready to start a test knit in February.

I have lots of other finished projects to share next week and I'm excited to see which yarn that I'll be knitting with in February.
