This week is the final giveaway for #hatseasoncometh and I'm sure you're gonna love it!
This is a gorgeous skein of Ripples Crafts 4ply Quinag in one of her limited edition Hubble Bubble colourways. Each Hubble Bubble is a one off, and this one doesn't disappoint.
Within the skein you'll find a luscious mix of oranges and greys, leading to rusts and warm reds.
And it is going to make a beautiful Hat!
If you're not already familiar with Ripples Crafts yarn then it'll interest you to know that each skein is hand dyed in a small off-grid dwelling in Scotland. Wind power is put to good use and Helen creates these stunning colours reflecting her surrounding environment. What's not to love?
This particular skein is inspired by the Northern Lights and Hubble Telescope photos, and the depth of colour in the skein truly reflects that. I love too how each skein has this info on the label.
This yarn is on the finer end of 4ply, and you'll want to be mindful of that when choosing a Woolly Wormhead pattern. This is 100g/400m of Superwash Bluefaced Leicester and would be perfect for something like Dancette, though you may want to knit the next size up to get a good fit as a workaround for the smaller gauge.
Arkanoid or Bedragonned would be good choices, or the sideways constructed Arbacia or the ever popular Rubbish Mojitos. Out of the Darkness will be close in gauge or of course Gallone, which will allow the repeats in the colours to shine.
Have a wander through my 4ply patterns, have a check gauge, and see what takes your fancy.
Then leave a comment here with your Ravelry name, your choice of pattern and why, and don't forget to fill in the email field in the comments section so I can get in touch if you win.
I'll leave this draw open until midnight saturday 27th August (GMT) with the aim of getting it in the post the following monday - we're off on more travels at the end of the month and I'd like to get it in the post before we leave, so do keep an eye out for an email on sunday!
Good luck folks!
