Pimms Cup - 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 (which comes with a pdf download code), ECY printed project bag, and a sachet of Soak no rinse wool wash.

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.
