Zealana
ZealanaDon’t you wish you had one of Libby’s new Thinking Caps on today! Such a cute design and it looks so snuggly. We’ve just received in a whole lot of Zealana Artisan Heron just for this lovely hat. Take a look and get knitting! Reposted from Truly Myrtle: Thinking Cap is quick and fun to knit, as well as lovely and cosy to wear. The pattern even gives you the chance to have a little play with colour - you might choose two strongly contrasting hues, a soft blend of muted tones, or maybe a rainbow gradient fading through ... the options are endless.

With two similar-but-different versions of Thinking Cap in the pattern, you'll have a blast whipping up (did I say they were super-quick to knit?) a bunch of similar-but-different version for the whole family and everyone else who asks for one ;)
