Cup Cake hats

On my day trip to Anker Wood last week I mentioned that there was also a Dobbies Garden Centre on the same site.  
I do like Dobbies, they always seem to have something different and the food in the cafe is really good too.  This Dobbies was extremly good, in addition to the usual things you find at garden centres there was also a large butchers, a Ponden Mill (soft furnishings), Peacocks (clothes) and a shoe section, all under the same roof. 

We had a good look round and my eagle eye spotted some Caron Cupcake yarn on sale.
At £2.99 I had to pick up a couple to try.

The yarn cake comes with a pompom and on the reverse of the label is either a knit or crochet hat pattern.  I chose the ones with a knit pattern and this is how they came out.

I was pleasantly surprised by the yarn, it was really nice to work with and I think they came out great.  These will be put to one side and appear in Jacob and Bonnie's Christmas stocking

There is enough yarn left from each cake to make another hat, (so you could make two hats, if that makes sense, lol)
I don't want to add these to my stash so If anyone would like the remaining yarn please leave me a comment saying so and I will mail them out to you, including the ball band with the pattern, (of course you don't have to use the pattern on the ball band, it is only just a basic hat pattern).  
You will however have to make your own pompom should you want one as the yarn only comes with one per cake.

Because of postage costs I'm only offering to post within the UK and they will go to the first person to say they want them in the comments. 

Take care

Love both the yats, the colours are beautiful, please don't enter me in yarn giveaway, I am working myself through my own yarn stash.

They're fabulous, I'm sure Bonnie and Jacob will look very cute in them. That's a good deal on that yarn, especially when there's pompoms included too. I hope someone can make use of the leftovers.

Those hats are so cute, I have seen the yarn before but never a hat finished from one of the cakes. Thanks for sharing your finished projects with us.

God bless.

What dear little hats. I’d love the left over yarn please if nobody else wants it. I know a little boy George who would look lovely in a Pom Pom titfer.👶🏼

Maggie said...

The yarn will go to Shimpton and Perfect as she was the first person to say that she wanted the yarn. I have emailed you, Jean? can you reply with your address and I will get it in the mail to you.
Thank you x

Two lovely hats.
I like a visit around Dobbies too. Unfortunately the restaurant in the one my mum goes to isn't great.
