Yes, I think this will be my final trial. A bit of wet blocking and the willow hat will be done with one small added trim! I can’t wait for this to launch. Stay tuned here and at!

Many years ago I met John. He played a song for me on a regular basis. It was by Steeleye Span and is called All Around My Hat…(I will wear the green willow).

This is it! My willow hat. Made from Raxor’s Super Springy 8 ply (DK or 3) wool. I can’t get enough of this wool, it is soft drapes and has wonderful stitch definition. And it makes the best projects!!!

Not long now!


The green willow beret

Yes, this is the Willow Beret! The pattern is almost ready. It is more of a slouchie but still based on a beret pattern.

It is made from Super Springy by Raxor Yarns ( ) and fibers. The colour is Daintree. I just love knitting this yarn as the stitch definition is amazing and the drape…. well, silky is the best description. This is why the hat is more of a slouchie.

It was made for a friend whose visa expired and she had to leave the country.  She was from Sweden and so the hat was made with a willow leaf pattern from an Estonian Haapsalu design.

It is a quick knit and was blocked over a large dinner plate.

The pattern should be available soon through Raxor’s site.

Happy knitting!
