Boreraig Hat

 

Delighted to see that Heather has made this hat available free.  I was lucky to enough to be one of the test knitters and have to say it is one of the nicest hats I have knit in a while.   Link to pattern page on Ravelry  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/boreraig

This hat has a quirky construction with a provisional cast on you knit the crown and then pick up the rib section before binding off with a tubular cast off.  Great for stash busting all those bits and pieces of DK you have lying around.

I knit the large and feel it is quite roomy.  The fabric is quite dense and in 100% wool it is a very warm and practical winter hat.
