    This is so lovely and festive! Just wondered what thickness the 'thick and quick' wool is? (I'd like to find a substitute) and also – the Kate Spade link is just going through to the main website… am curious to see the original – any chance of a link? Ta!

    Love the hat! So it's 12 rows in fisherman, then 28 in cranberry, or are the 12 included in the 28? Also, What does it mean by work 26 rows for rows 1-28? I'm a bit of a newbie to knitting and a little confused

      Hi! It's 28 total rows- so the 12 fisherman are included. The other part was suppose to read "Rows 1-28: Work 28 rows in k2, p2 Rib" Thanks for pointing out the error!
