A warm, chunky/bulky yarn hat to throw on for that walk by the sea. A random selection of moss (USA seed), double moss (USA moss) and garter stitch make for a lovely texture that matches the Lorna poncho perfectly.
An easy knit for the confident beginner and yet interesting enough for the experienced knitter who likes to watch the world go by or natter with friends and knit at the same time. Knitted on 2 needles and sewn up the back. Line by line instructions with British/American terms throughout.
For the adult size hat without a pompom, only 1 ball is needed of the listed yarn, but other yarns may vary.

The Lonely Sea - Heather Corcoran
I have a bag that say ' I knit therefore I am' - sums me up perfectly! I love to knit and love to design! I have knitted for years, and made and sold literally hundreds of owl gloves and fingerless mitts on-line. About 5 years ago, I decided to give designing and writing patterns a go, and I absolutely love it! The whole process is absolutely captivating, and I love to see other knitters' projects made from my patterns. My beautiful cavvy, Honey, is my constant companion, and she sleeps next to me on the settee while I knit. You can also find me on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/thelonelyseapatterns/
