I love to test patterns for people as well as design my own and a recent call out for a hat test from Inspired by Ainsley for anyone that had some super bulky yarn and a 9mm (size M) hook handy had me running to my yarn stash. I knew I had some beautiful yarn spare that I had just not found the right project for yet and knew that the one I had in mind would be perfect.
The yarn from the stash mountain was Tivoli Cloud yarn which is a 80% acrylic and 20% wool combination but is so squishy and soft. I’d loved the dusky red colour and brought it on impulse (as you do) and I am so glad that I had now found the ‘something’ to use it on. The added bonus was I knew it would match my little ones coat perfectly.
I actually love everything about this hat; its chunky texture is just gorgeous, it looks fabulous on and I got to learn a new stitch that I had never done before which is always fun. The pattern has sizes for newborn, baby and adult and is scheduled to be released on Friday 31st January so make sure you pop by Inspired by Ainsley Facebook page for more details on where to get your copy.
