And here it is, the Finchley Road Hat. I had a couple of balls left over from making the shawl and figured a warm, cozy hat would be the best use for them (it’s getting chilly out here in the Northwest).
The price is $3 for now, as (to my embarrassment) testing isn’t quite done. The pattern has been tech edited and I think it’s in pretty good shape but until I get all the feedback in, it’s on sale. Once I hear from the testers, the price will go up to $6. If you buy it now you’ll automatically get updates as they’re made.(Price has now gone up. BUT there’s a deal: if you buy the Finchley Road Hat at $6 you can buy the Shawl at 50% off ($3) and vice versa. And it’s retroactive so if you’ve already bought one you can buy the other at half price anytime. )
Like the shawl, the pattern is both written and charted, and of course I’m always available for support if you have questions about it.
