I’m so pleased with my Sheep Head Hat! 🙂
I used CEY’s soft and lovely Vail, which is an alpaca/bamboo blend, available is eight naturally-dyed shades of grey and brown. When I bought the yarn for this project, only six shades were out — the other two were added with this fall’s line of new colors.
Project: Sheep Head Hat
Pattern: sheep heid
Designer: Kate Davies
Available: £2.75 GBP on Ravelry
Yarn: Classic Elite Yarn’s Moutaintop Vail, six hues
The original pattern called for nine natural sheep colors, so I had to modify my hat to use the six shades I had to work with. I lost a bit of the dynamics of the original hat, but I still love my version. The alpaca-bamboo fingering weight yarn is amazingly soft and lightweight. The standing sheep in the hat body are adorable, but I love the graphic rams-head decreases on the top. UPDATE: my hat was featured in the CEY blog!
