Knitted slouchy hat kit: Baudot

This is a gorgeous little kit for the Baudot tam from our Bletchley Collection. It includes the A4/A5 printed pattern (with complimentary free pdf download code), an ECY printed drawstring cotton project bag, a 5ml sachet of Soak (scent picked at random unless otherwise requested), and of course two 50g skeins of Milburn 4ply (85% superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool/15% silk). Remember to pick your colour!

About the pattern

This lace slouch beanie hides a secret…worked into the pretty lacepattern is an original cipher code, ‘Baudot’ from Bletchley Park. It reads, ‘knit, tink, knit, tink’. Here's hoping you'll enjoy the knitting and not have to do too much of the tinking!
