I had a ball of Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury, that had been begging me to use it. So the name of the hat comes from the Colour of the yarn used. ‘Pumpkin Spice”.
King Cole Merino Blend Aran is a good match if you can’t get your hands on some BWM Luxury but trust me you would love it. It is just as the name says.
I guess designing is a lot about trial and error and I sure found it to be the case designing this hat.
I have written about the journey to design this, previously on my blog. It did test me to the limits. a number of times.
Getting the stitches right took quite some time. Too loose, too tight, the pattern running with a slant on it. Some days it was a case of ‘this hat just hates me!’ And then I ran out of cream yarn!!!!!!!!!!!
So dejected, but not defeated I had to wait for another ball of yarn to arrive.
So I am happy to say that it is now Published on Love Crochet
