I was asked by a friend to knit this hat for her. I am knitting with King Cole King Cole Merino Blend Double Knitting Yarn but the suggested yarn on the pattern is Manos de Uruguay (see photos above from my first go at this pattern). Its knitting up good and is a lovely basket weave pattern.
I am also going to crochet a hat for her and I have got some great buttons for each of them.
I shall update with new photos as they progress.
