Sea Urchin Hat

Sea Urchin Hat

Regular price £4.00 Sale

This quick hat is an inside out project, worked with wrong side facing to maximise the cute puffs that burst from the centre. Worked in a double knit weight yarn on a 5mm hook and with an easily memorised pattern, you’ll have this stylish beanie on your head in no time at all. The beautiful drape comes from the silk/camel blend yarn, but would also work well in alpaca or bamboo blends.
