If you purchase Dorothy, you can get the sibling pattern Dotty for 50% off! No code needed, just add to cart.

Meet Dorothy, Dotty’s slightly more sensible sister! When I finished Dotty, I knew I wanted to design a second version using only one colour and showcasing a richly textured crown. Though a little less frivolous than Dotty, Dorothy still has a good dose of whimsy and is so much fun to knit. The best part? Only a single skein is needed to complete your project!

Happy knitting! x

Yarn

Prado De Lana Ovejas; 2 ply light Worsted, 100% Romney, 200 yds/182 meters in 100 g in colourway San Felipe.

Approx 154 (176) yards/141 (161) meters.

1 skein of Ovejas Romney is enough for both sizes, but please note that if you want to add a pom pom, you will need to purchase another skein.

Needles

Larger needle in size required to obtain gauge. I suggest using 4 mm/6 US with a 16” / 40.5 cm cable and double-pointed needles.

Smaller needle two sizes smaller than larger needle. I suggest using 3.5/4 US with a 16“ / 40.5 cm cable for ribbing.

Sizes

Sizes 1 (2).

Head Circ: 16.75 (19)” / 42 (48.5) cm
Length (with brim unfolded): 10.25” / 26 cm

To be worn with 0 to 3” / 0 to 7.5 cm of negative ease. I wear size 2 in the photos with a negative ease of 3” / 7.5 cm.

Gauge

26 sts by 36 rows over 4”/10 cm in charted pattern with larger needle size and after blocking.

Notions

Tapestry needle, 6 (7) stitch markers, and one unique marker for BOR, cable needle.
