A colleague, who also happens to be one of my son's scout leaders, mentioned a couple of weeks ago that she'd want a hat with the scouts' motto on it, "Alltid beredt" ("always prepared"). So, this of course got my knitting brain started. I had left over yarn from these leg warmers, and I had just seen some cool earflaps on Woolly Wormhead's blog. I was a fun and quick knit!
The hat is worked in seven colours of Rauma 3ply strikkegarn, on needles 3 and 3,5 mm.
I have written a pattern, in Norwegian. Test knitters are welcome! There is one adult size and one child size. If you don't have a scout to knit for, you can replace the letters with trees, or you can write something else (alphabet and blank charts are included in the pattern).
