Yarn - New Lanark DK in Sky (62g including pompoms)
Additions - Two pompoms made using the extra small pink Clover pompom maker*
Notes - Obviously, I substituted the bow for the pompoms. N's style is quite feminine but I thought the bow might be verging a bit too much on the twee side for her taste. This was the first time I'd used the New Lanark wool, despite having a few different balls in my stash for a while, and it was lovely to use. The colour is very pretty too. I longed to put a pompom on crown but I thought two was quite enough!
I was a bit worried that the loose style of the hat might make the fit a problem, but the band fit perfectly (on me anyway) and I think it would be fairly safe in the wind - always a major concern when making hats in Scotland! This is not a style I'd think to make for myself but I really want my own version now...
