Janice made this striking version of ‘Oliver’s Hat’ for our BC Garn Bio Shetland promotion. The pattern is Oliver’s Hat, by Sandra Manson, and the yarn, of course, is Bio Shetland. It’s a lovely pattern that suits the yarn very well. Janice’s colourwork is beautiful, and the finished hat is delightful.
Janice describes Bio Shetland as ‘a light toothy yarn which makes it perfect for colour work. It is lovely to knit with and the longer yardage comes in handy. Once blocked the yarn felts beautifully showing off the knitted design.’ She particularly loves the way the crown worked up.
She also warns that the pattern is on the small side and recommends that knitters check for gauge etc to get their size.
