Every year the Mystery Hat-a-Long gets stronger and stronger! And this is our 12th year? 13th maybe? I’ve lost count!

This year the Hat style is a cross between various other styles…. something to keep the ears warm without earflaps; something textured and drapey that can be as slouchy as you like (or not); and something that covers a wide range of yarns - the sample is knit in worsted, but the Introduction file covers gauges from sport weight through to aran (that’s quite a choice!)

This MKAL will be held in the Woolly Wormhead's Hats group on Ravelry - any and all questions relating to this MKAL and it's patterns are answered there. I'm afraid I'm unable to offer help via email or social media for this event.

The Introduction file will provide you with all the details you need ahead of casting on, including hashtags for social media and how to avoid spoilers.

Installment dates:
Pt. 1 – 1st November
