Hats Off for July and August

Hats Off for July and August

August 04, 2020

Our July hat is Ware Gazebos:

Ware Gazebos Hat - small houses circle the hat

Inspired by those lovely little summerhouses along the River Lea at Ware, you can make this cosy hat using stranded colourwork 

For August we present Different Drum:

Variegated hat    Two-coloured Different Drum hat

This hat is worked sideways in garter stitch using short rows / wrap and turn to create the shaping.  There's an explanation of the technique in the pattern - which is great to create all sorts of shaping in your garments.  

The variegated version uses Hayfield Bonus Breeze DK, while the two-colour version uses Stylecraft Life DK.

Both hat patterns are available for £1.50 until the end of August.


The Hats Off event will now pause for a month or two - but we'll be back with more techniques for you to try later in the year.
