Hat of the week

Brrrr – don't know about where you are, but here in London it's absolutely brass monkeys, so to get through this chilly spell I'm going to post some fine hats – with instructions on how to knit, sew or crochet them – one a week til it warms up out there.
First up, this beautiful knitted deerstalker number (the matching jacket will have to wait for another time!)

I love the painting in the background, not to mention the dog and the knitted knickerbockers. The pattern is taken from this 1973 tome I've had for years, which is published by Octopus, printed in Czechoslovakia and filled with all manner of other delights, some of which I'll be sharing with you.
