Exmoor Horn wool fairisle pattern bobble hat
A band of traditional fairisle pattern in green and yellow brightens this cream bobble hat. This hat starts with a deep ribbed welt to keep your ears cosy, and is finished off with a multicoloured bobble of the same green and yellow.
I have hand-knit this pretty bobble hat from 100% British wool, made up of 70% Exmoor Horn wool and 30% Exmoor Blueface wool. I found this unusual wool at my annual visit to "Woolfest", and fell in love with the clear colours.
As usual I have knitted this hat "in-the-round" so there are no ugly or uncomfortable seams. To fit average adult head size 55-60cm (21.5-23 inches) and slightly stretchy for a comfortable fit.
Hand-washing is best to keep pure wool in top condition, but if your machine has a cool/ gentle/ wool setting then that works too!
