Ljos Hat



I’ve often thought that it would make sense to take inspiration from our Northern neighbours when it comes to making yarn from the fibre of our ancient sheep breeds. This yarn from Irish producer S Twist does just that, blending naturally coloured Galway, Jacob and Shetland fibres into a loose single ply that will be familiar to anyone who has worked with Icelandic lopi. It seemed only fitting to design a pattern inspired by the geometric colourwork yokes of Icelandic Lopapeysas. The hat is worked from the bottom up with decreases incorporated into the colourwork pattern, as it is on those yokes, creating a particularly appealing crown pattern. 

If you've taken the Milet mittens or plan on doing so, this pattern can be adjusted to use 3 colors instead of 4 to blend perfectly!
