Pimms Cup by Thea Colman - knitted hat kit

This is a kit to make Pimms Cup - a knitted hat in Milburn DK or Whitfell DK. Each kit will make one hat with a bobble (unless you make the hat bigger). Kits contain the yarn (choose the colour from the drop down box), A5 print pattern and an ECY printed project bag.

From the Pimms Cup Ravelry page:

This soft, slouchy hat, features a deep ribbing that flows effortlessly into an alternating lace leaves and twisted cables pattern, giving the hat a lovely balance of textures whilst being fun to knit. The perfect accompaniment to kicking through crunchy Autumn leaves before heading to a cosy country pub. Add a bobble to the top to bring a fun element to this piece.
