Free Hat Pattern To Celebrate Shetland Wool Week 2016

How to beat last year's Shetland Wool Week Baa-ble free hat pattern by Donna Smith, which proved so popular that nearly 5000 Ravelry users have stashed it in their project folder?

This year's Shetland Wool Week patron, Ella Gordon, has risen to the challenge by designing a topper with colourful stitch appeal. Called 'Crofthoose Hat', Gordon has suggested four colourways for her take on the traditional Shetland building.

On her blog, textile maker Gordon has posted pictures of her wearing the hat in a fifth colour way with a plain crown.

Shetland Wool Week takes place this year from 24 September to 2nd October. Plenty of time then to knit your own version of Crofthoose'.


  1. Thanks for posting about the free pattern as I'm sure I wouldn't have come across it otherwise. Isn't it gorgeous?

  2. Yes, it's fabulous! How I wish I had more hours in the day to knit it!
