The Rhidorroch hat is a fun design by my friend Emily Williams – which is rather appropriate since she found the flock who grew the wool for the lovely Coulmore yarn (see this post for more information)!
To quote from the pattern:
‘Rhidorroch is a gently slouchy hat, topped by a generous pom pom. It uses a slip stitch pattern in textured stripes to highlight the beautiful colours of the naturally dyed yarn. The sheep from this flock spend the winter near Inverness, at Coulmore, but the hat is named after their summer home on the west coast of Scotland.’
Suggested needles: 3.25mm and 4mm
Finished circumference: 49 (52, 55.5) cm / 19.5 (20.75, 22.25) in
Length: 23 cm / 9.25 in
The hat is shown with 1.5 cm / 0.5 in negative ease.
Knitting in the round, slipped stitches.
