Shetland Wool Week 2024 sees Islesburgh Toorie as The Shetland Wool Week Hat pattern. Always a great fun knit, we use this as another excuse to be silly and we hold a knitting race. Missed the race this time? Never mind there's always next year! This year we have decided to have a Shropshire Wool Hat and we are picking our colours from our own hand-dyed local wool. All versions are 4 Ply. One ball of the main colour usually is sufficient but if you are going to knit the large version please add an extra ball of Yarn A.

Yarn A: potpourri 603

Yarn B: purple heather 239
