neep heid (pronounced neeeep heeeed) is a traditional colourwork tam, worked in my favourite Shetland yarn.
A pattern written in such extraordinary detail that even a beginner will feel confident. Each size’s thumb and finger gussets even have their own separate charts! Ms. the Purl’s interest in knitting history is evident through her groundbreaking book Canada Knits, and her great love for ethnic knitting traditions of all kinds shines through every page of this work. Yarn used is Shetland 2 ply jumper or fingering weight. (Patternfish.com)
