We now offer handy kits of this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make this brilliant hat along with the pattern, a limited edition button badge and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting!  

The Torebreck Hat pattern is designed by Emily K Williams, a fab indie designer. Click here if you’d like to buy just the pattern, without the yarn. 

Whether you prefer juicy greens or delicious golden shades, a tonal hat makes for a satisfying colourwork snack. Slices of classic motifs pile up to give just the
right amount of slouch, all topped off with a perfect pomme. John Arbon’s Appledore yarn is a perfect choice: crisp and woolly, with a shade selection as rich as the apple varieties that lent their names, and a bloom as beautiful as the heritage orchard where we took the photos.
