This has been a fun week so far, and we’re only at Tuesday! Two sneak peeks and a pattern release to boot. Plus all sorts of fun behind the scenes too.

I would like to introduce the Thryth Hat designed by The Red Fox and Gown for Herdy, a fun British company that I mentioned in my previous post. I love Herdy! And I hope you love the new ear flap hat. I just had to include pom poms and faux thrums. The hat is made from their luxurious bulky Herdywool, which I totally recommend.

The Thryth Hat for Herdy keeps you stylish and your ears toasty during inclement weather year round on all your adventures. The hat is topped with a giant pompom and features earflaps and braids with small pompoms. The hat is available in one adult size.

Skiills Required:
Backward cast on, knit st, purl st, placing st markers, working in the round, stockinette fabric, colourwork, decreases, bind off, sewing, braiding, pompom making, weaving in ends.

Finished Dimensions:
The finished hat fits heads approximately 20” to 23” (51cm – 58.5cm) in circumference.

If you’re interested in a KAL for the new design, check out The Red Fox and Gown group on Ravelry for good times.

Kiki Ear Flap Hat with Pompom: Sneak Peek

Kiki hat fresh off the needles.

It’s a cliche, but so true… the creative juices have been flowing lately, fired up by the autumnal weather and cool evenings. I had to make an earflap hat, with a big pompom on top and faux thrumming. Oh yes. And I’m so pleased with how it turned out. I even figured out how to do crochet for the edges.


The hat is so named for my kitty Kiki, who helped me pick out the wool for this project. She picked out her very own colours, smart girl.

I have a feeling this is one sample I’ll be wearing around this winter. Now that the obsessive knitting of the last couple days is over, I need to sit down and write up the pattern and send off to the technical editor. And then I promise I’ll post on Ravelry and Etsy.

What do you think? Am I the only sucker for ear flap hats?
