It’s been a while since we did one of our “Knitting Radio” podcasts where we work on a specific project and talk about everything and anything that comes to mind. This week, on our channel, we are embroidering whiskers on our Magnus “Year of the Rat” hat as we talk about our recent trip to South Africa, Angora goats, Merino sheep and the men’s folk costume from Gudbrandsdalen that we are both going to be busy making this year.

As to what the men’s folk costume from our region in Norway looks like, click on this link which will take you to a page with a few images. As you can see, we have our work cut out for us for a very long time now!
This week, on our web shop, we have added the Magnus “Year of the Rat” hat. Click on the images below to access the pattern! It was originally only conceived as a one size fits all pattern, but we have found a way to make it into 3 sizes: baby, small kids, everyone else. All the dimensions for the 3 sizes are now available in the pattern.
