Remember my Lillehammer mittens?
Here's a hat to go with them.
Remember last year's Birkebeiner competition between my sister and her friend?
The hat is this year's price for the one who improves the time more,
relatively that is, so there will be calculations involved too.
The hat is worked in Rauma mitu, a wool/alpaca blend, that is soft and gives a warm fabric. It's nice to knit with.
The garter stitch brim with ear flaps is worked flat, ear flaps formed with short rows.
The rest of the hat is worked in the round.
And this hat definitely needed a pompom!
Pattern is ready for test knitting - in Norwegian. Interested, anyone?
