The kit includes the paper copy pattern and yarn to knit either the hat or the cowl version and comes in a drawstring cotton bag. We have put together some colour combination options but if you'd like a different selection please get in touch.
The pattern includes instructions for either the hat or the cowl, depicting a geographically inaccurate representation of iconic buildings of Glasgow. There's the City Chambers building in George Square, the Clyde Arc (AKA the Squinty Bridge), the Titan Crane, the Armadillo, the Science Centre Tower, the University Tower, and the Duke of Wellington statue, complete with cone. A Rennie Mackintosh rose and ladder motif forms the border. The cone on the Duke of Wellington can be duplicate stitched in orange and white to make it stand out and scraps of these colours will be included in the kit.
The pattern is one-size, to fit an adult head approx. 22" circumference. The pattern is knit with two colours of Kinross 4ply and uses one hank of each colour for either the hat or the cowl version. The sample shown is knit with Black and Gorse, inspired by the old 'Glasgow's Miles Better' campaign. They are knit in the round using stranded knitting. There are some long floats so please make sure you are comfortable with catching floats for this design. It uses 3mm needles for the ribbing and 3.25mm for the body, please note that needles are not included in the kit but can be purchased separately.
