Hello! And welcome to Hot Knits #2 Toft Knitted Hat Kits! For this month’s Hot Knit, I have chosen these gorgeous knitted hat kits from Toft.
Since having a baby and finding that my time and mental resources are now seriously limited, I have discovered a real love of knit kits, they’re just so simple! Find a pattern you like, choose the colourway and BAM you’re done!
I normally love agonising over the yarn for a pattern, checking the suitability, choosing the colour etc. But when I’m feeling tired and I’m limited for time, I just want to knit and knit kits are a brilliant way to do this.
I’ve loved Toft since seeing their crocheted animals at the Knitting and Stitching Show, back in 2013. I also knitted the Abergeldie Lace Cardigan from their Quarterly Magazine from 2016.
Whilst recently stalking their website, looking at the latest Quarterly magazine, I found these gorgeous knitted hat kits and was totally hooked!
There are LOADS of styles to choose from, the photo above is a small selection and you can also change the colour way for each hat, which I think is fab!
I literally change my mind about which is my favourite each time I look at them. I’m currently loving the Linhay Hat, and would maybe choose this in the camel and cream colourway with a stone pom pom.
I currently have three hat WIPS waiting, but once I’ve done those I’m definitely going to be investing in one of these! Plus one may end up on my Christmas list!
