After Eight by Anna Elliott: Digital Download

This product is for a digital download of the pattern only.

Part of the Mint Collection, a collection of three cosy and beautiful hats by Anna Elliott, worked in the soft and snuggly Whitfell DK (100% baby alpaca) from Eden Cottage Yarns. Inspired by various mints, each one has its own unique style and features. To buy all three patterns together go to the Mint Collection listing.

Although this pattern was written for Whitfell DK, it would be just as good in Milburn DK and many other of our DK yarns. The second image shows this pattern made with Hayton DK in Hydrangea.


After Eight

Add a touch of sparkle to your winter wardrobe with this delightful hat. Eye-catching beads twinkle from the figure of eight lace pattern as it dances towards the beautifully shaped crown.

This hat comes in two sizes and is designed to be close fitting so you can channel your inner disco-dancing queen. If you prefer your hat to be slightly slouchier you can easily add an extra lace repeat.

Whitfell DK is soft and sumptuously warm; this stunning yarn comes in nine glorious shades, giving endless yarn and bead combinations to choose from. Pair subtle beads with a paired back neutral for a stylish look or opt for bright and bold combinations to brighten up those dreary winter days.
