Norwegian Summer…

Summer hat...Norwegian summer can be everything; warm, cold, windy, sunny, rainy, cloudy… Our vacation on an island off the coast has had everything, even within some days the variation have been amazing! I feel this to be fresh and amusing, although we would wish for some more sun & warm weather to be able to swimming in the ocean more often.

Summer hat, detailBut it has given us lot of time for small “exploration” trips both by foot and by boat. And time for knitting in front of the fireplace! I had some very nice yarn from France, a bit more bulky than I prefer, but I chose it due to colors and the softness. So I made this “simple” hat (just cables and stripes) which turned out to be useful even in July… Summer hat

Now I transform the pattern to thinner yarn and I have spent some time trying to write it up as a understandable pattern which I “test knit” myself just as it is… Will let you know how it goes!Summer hat
