Kyukker is the Shetland dialect word meaning to cheer up – hopefully youwill agree that the colours in this hat will cheer anyone up. The ear pieces are optional. The short section of ribbing helps give a snug fit.
This hat was designed to use up small amounts of Shetland yarn.
Instructions are given for four sizes and five different colour ways.
Have used the Shetland Spindrift before and I've knitted up other FairIsle hat patterns, so no problem. The wool is lovely to knot with, it's easy to block and a little goes a long way. I've knitted the pattern twice, though the 1st size is for a small toddler/child, so measure their heads before you knit it to check that with an older child you need the 2nd. size. The last two sizes are adult sizes. There is a great selection of different colours with the wool, so you can always choose different colours to what are shown as examples in the pattern but these are OK anyway. You do need the right size pudding basin to hand when it comes to blocking.
