Simply Knitting - Tayberry Hat by Debbie Tomkies

Debbie's Tayberry Hat knitting pattern was featured in the Simply Knitting Essential Winter Makes mini magazine which came with issue 76 of Simply Knitting magazine. Debbie designed the hat to use the free buckles included with the magazine. Knitted in our hand dyed 100% baby alpaca aran yarn the Tayberry Hat is shown in the Lavender's Blue colourway but looks equally fabulous in any of Debbie's hand dyed shades!

Huggable! A feather-light yarn carefully spun to give a cabled appearance, giving the yarn strength but without weight. Suggested needle sizes: 4.5mm 6.5mm

Uses: This yarn is ideal for baby blankets and garments where a more chunky effect is needed but which is still light and soft. It is very comfortable, even against the skin. This yarn should substitute for most aran patterns and is a good alternative for those who like the look of cables but find the finished garments rather heavy.

Our hand dyed yarns are individually hand dyed by Debbie and supplied as skeins. Variation between skeins is part of the charm of these unique yarns as no two are alike. We recommend that you knit hand dyed yarns in imaginary stripes, switching between skeins approximately every three to four rows for the best effect.
