Blog Posts: I’ve written about Dave The Hat twice, click here to read about the pattern and click here to read about why I design it.

My design ideas and advice:  This is a great quick and simple knit, a great project for beginners or a quick weekend project for experienced knitters who need a moment or two of pure simple stitches. For experienced knitters it’s great for using up yarn from your stash, you can combine your stash yarn with one ball of KIlcarra Tweed, treat yourself to a new shade for using up oddments!
The long version using all the  two 50g balls up so if you wanted to add a pompom then this needs additional yarn.
I designed
 Davina, a simple scarf with it’s ends sew together to make a cowl in the same way!
