Combining Scottish heritage yarn with a little chic French-inspired style, this hat is sure to become a firm favourite.
Knitted in the round with written instructions and charts included, this Fair Isle hat can be slouched (pictured) or a beanie. The zigzagging pattern continues throughout the crown and the picot edged brim with attached bow provide a bit of girly glamour.
