For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: One 100g hank of Purl &Jane Masham Mashup Aran (75% Bluefaced Leicester and 25% Masham, 160m per 100g)
In the Skipton studio there is another version where I used: Two 50g balls of Knoll Kilcarra Tweed (100% Pure New Wool, 80m/87yds per 50g) in shade 4582 Fintown.
Metres/Yardages for shade A: 150m/174yds.
Needles: 4mm and 5mm.
Tension: 18 stitches and 24 rows to 10cm square over rib pattern when using 5mm needles.
Size: To fit an average size head.

My design ideas and advice: I designed this one for the boys, and once again it came back from my knitter and I wanted one! This straightforward pattern has no complicated abbreviations or tricky techniques. I designed it to be floppy but if you prefer the hat to be more like a beanie then you can simply knit it to a shorter length.
