Boyd Hat Kit


We now offer handy kits of this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make this colourful hat along with a limited edition button badge and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting!  Please be aware this kit does not include the pattern as it is in our Annual – and we know many of you will have one already. Please visit this link to pick one up if you need a copy of the pattern
