My design ideas and advice: I love the reindeers dancing around the hat all excited for the coming festive season, while keeping your head lovely and warm on those winter walks. After I finished the hat, I still had enough yarn left over to make the mittens – perfect for knitters who want to try out fair isle knitting.
