For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: Two 25g balls of Adriafil Cachemire (100% cashmere, 87.5m/95yd per 25g).
I used shade 24 Light Grey.
My Yarn Suggestion & Amounts: Nothing beats the luxury of pure cashmere and to knit this hat in this fibre is the best treat ever.
I do have lots of other aran weight yarn to choose for if you wish to knit this hat in a locally spun yarn or in an alpaca and wool yarn. My suggestions are one hank of WYS Bluefaced Leicester Aran or for colour one hank of WYS The Croft Shetland Tweed Aran or the natural shades of the alpaca (mixed with wool) are available for my studio.
Needles: 4.5mm and 5mm.
Tension: 18 stitches and 28 rows to 10cm square over moss stitch using 5mm needles.
Measurements: to fit average size head.
My design ideas and advice: A luxury – a hand knit hat knitted in cashmere. It’s like having delicate kiss on the head every time you wear it. Perfect for chilly chilling days!
