Skipton Hat ::

Posted by vicki brown on

Those of you who follow me over on Instagram may have seen back in September, the hat I crocheted myself on the train on the way to Yarndale.  I grabbed a skein of yarn and a hook as I was running out the door in the morning and by the time I arrived in Skipton I had a fresh new hat upon my head! 

I loved that hat a lot and wore it all weekend,  plus I purchased myself a turquoise fluffy pom pom to go on the top of it from CoopKnits whilst at the festival. I promised lots of you at the time that I would get the pattern written up so you too could make your own. It's taken me ages to finally get round to it, but last week, when the original hat's whereabouts became a mystery to me, I decided it was about time I wrote up the pattern and made myself a new hat (I'm still hopeful the original hat might turn up as my Sirkku Mittens are also missing, so I'm guessing they are just both hiding in a mystery location somewhere together).

I love this hat for many reasons, firstly it's a perfect way to show off a 100g skein of DK yarn, it's a super quick, easy and satisfying make, I don't expect everyone to get their's done over a train journey, but it's certainly a weekend project. Plus it's really lovely to wear, it just has a really nice comfy fit, with lots of slouch in the back, which for me is just how I like my hats.

  • Hi

    Thank you for the quickly delivery to my office.
    When I view the package, I immediately saw that something was wrong with it, and when I opened it, the product was unfortunately broken.
    I made a photo so that you can see what I have received.
    Hope we can solve this small problem in a good way.

    Yours sincerely

  • Good Morning, recently I decorated our company’s office (it was fun and messy at the same time) and I decided to write up an article on how to decorate a home on a budget. It would be superb if you could publish this little guide of mine on your blog.

    I have saved the guide on my google drive which you can access through here:

    I did not have time to collect some pretty images so please add some to the post.

    It would be fab if you could ping me the link to the published blog so that I could share it with my friends on Facebook who I am sure will read it with great interest as I am sure that everyone is bound to decorate their home sometime.

    Best wishes

  • Hi Vicki, loving th Skipton hat pattern (which I saw you wearing at Yarndale!) & am making it in the “Roses for Emily” yarn which is just gorgeous! Quick query….the headband is crocheted on the smaller hook but when do you change to the larger hook……is it for the body of the hat?
    Love from “confused”!!
