Alpine Hat

£3.50

These beautiful fair isle hats are made using 3 skeins of Plump DK. They are fun to make and cleverly decrease at the top to produce a snowflake on the crown.  You can have lots of fun with the colours.  There is plenty of yarn left to make a pompom (although mine is topped with a pompom made from Plump Superchunky)

The hat comes in two sizes (adult and child)

For both sizes you will need 1 skein in each of 3 colours of Plump DK

You will also need 40cm circular needles in 4.5mm and 5mm and 5mm DPNs for the top.

Washing
Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Shedding
Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at info@mrsmoon.co.uk

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
