KNIT­TED HATS make great stash­buster projects, but some­times it’s nice to choose a lux­u­ri­ous yarn to cre­ate a hat to trea­sure. This pat­tern uses Stolen Stitches Nua, a yarn brand cre­ated by Ir­ish de­signer Carol Feller. It’s a sportweight blend of merino wool, yak and linen that knits up into a won­der­fully light fab­ric with a gor­geous silk­i­ness and glow; it’s avail­able in 10 warm, tweedy shades. The hat has been de­signed by Juliet Bernard, and fea­tures an el­e­gant stranded colour­work pat­tern.
