A kit to make Mirallat - a knitted hat by Woolly Wormhead using Martin's Lab Aubrey Sport (2 skeins).
Each kit includes:
- from 2 skeins of Aubrey Sport in color of your choice,
- a printed copy of "Homecoming" book curated by Martin's Lab containing the instructions for the cowl and 10 more designs by various designers.
- Martin's Lab printed cotton project bag,
and one sachet of no rinse wool wash.
The pattern is inside the Homecoming book.
From Ravelry pattern page:
Mirallat is a Hat of reflection, of symmetry, and of opposites. Worked sideways, the construction method used isn’t the more familiar sideways method that knitters may know from Woolly Wormhead designs.
Instead this Hat is knit sideways using increases and decreases to create the Hat form, with a few short rows to add some slouch. This construction is highlighted perfectly by the stripe formation.
Mirallat is an adventure in Hat knitting that results in a highly unusual and very wearable Hat.
