This summer in June I stumpled upon a recipe and yarn for a basker hat in a small knittingshop in Silkeborg in Denmark. I had to knit this version of a basker, so I baught the yarn and started one for myself.
It is knittet on knitting needles no 3, wollen yarn. The recipe can be found on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dragspelsbasker
When I came home from vacation, I went on a business trip to Svalbard, and brought with me yarn to knit a basker for my daughter. But she is 11, and for to old for pink - I was told. So her basker is in Red and Black.
And then finally a more masculine version for my darling Husband :-)
