So had a look through some of my books and decided on this one in the Knit Red book.
I made the large one, although I confess I didn’t read the pattern properly and didn’t knit the yarn double - so it’s come out baby/toddler size! Note to self - must read pattern properly first in future!
However, I am still really pleased with it as if no-one else wants it my little nephew to be will have it next Christmas!!
I also added in about five or six rows to the earflaps once I’d done all the increasing as I felt they needed to be a bit bigger and they looked like they had more rows in the photo.
I love the colour-way. I think the Gemini in me likes the variegated yarn! It is the gorgeous Montana by Sirdar in the Savannah colourway 0214. It is 70% Acrylic and 30% Wool. And is absolutely lovely to work with.
Surprised myself and managed to knit it in an evening!
