Here at Stitch Fest HQ we've been plotting and planning to make this year's show even more fun and fantastic.

Putting our heads together with fabulous Gorgeous Yarns of Helston, Cornwall, we've come up with a simple to knit or crochet hat pattern the MIYO - make it YOUR own!

Simple enough for a brand new crafter, and plain enough to be tweaked and developed by the advanced crafter - think colourwork, beads, pompoms, tassels, folds and's up to you! You can also knit it as a cowl instead. The pattern gives sizes from child to large adult.

This pattern is free and all we ask is you:

a) have fun making it!

b) either send us a photo or post a pic on

Instagram using the hashtag #stitchfest2019

c) wear it to the show!

There is a COMPETITION  which will be judged on 3rd November for the best customization.


Just present yourself at the front desk of the show for a photo and fill in a competition form and you may win a fantastic bag of WOOLLY GOODIES!
