{knitting} Mr Noble's Habitat

Ok, so school is out for the summer and I have some teachers' gifts to talk about this week. I'm going to post them all separately over the next few days. I have been busy making all kinds of stuff, despite the blog being quiet. I just haven't had the motivation nor the time to edit photos and to write blog posts. I have found motivation and time today - only because it's been so godawfully hot that I just couldn't be arsed doing anything else!

Brooklyn Tweed Habitat


The first gift is a Habitat hat, pattern by Brooklyn Tweed. It's my second go with this pattern and I had forgotten how beautiful it is. Plus, it's a lot of fun, too! I whipped this up very quickly. I think it was only 3 or 4 days, while I was watching Wimbledon.

 It was made with Cascade 220 - but I can't remember the name of the shade and the tag has disappeared. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. The pattern instructions are very straight forward and clear. I made the larger size but used smaller needles than recommended to account for my loose tension. The technical details can be found on my ravelry page.

The hat was given to Mr Noble, their IT teacher. He's one of very few male teachers at their school and both children love him! Liam is modelling it but it absolutely stretches out enough to fit a grown man's head. I tested it on Ginner. The beauty of stretchy cables...

You can get the Habitat pattern here.

    1. Hats are pretty straightforward, as long as it's a well written pattern... You might want to save this many cables for further down the line though. 😉
