Shetland Wool Week

Shetland Wool Week 2014: Shwook Hat

Shwook HatWith Shetland Wool Week just days away, I dug into my stash of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift that I had leftover from making the Beezy’s Traditional Beret last year to get started on my Shwook Hat.

I can certainly say that when you buy Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift, you are bound to get at least a few hats from it or bits and pieces to use in other projects.  Amazing how 25 g of shetland wool can go on forever.  To my advantage, I suppose.

The Shwook Hat calls for three darks and two lights if using what is on hand.  This is what I decided on.  For the darks: bark brown, deep heather green, and a maroon red.  For the lights: apple green and yellow-tint oatmeal.  I think they will work just fine.  You can hardly go wrong with fair isle.  It would take some pretty putrid colors to really fail.
