This pattern was taken from one of the earlier Rowan magazines (I bought 4 back issues for £10 from the Rowan website, which I thought was a BARGAIN). It's knitted in Rowan Polar, which is discontinued but I bought it from the Cucumberpatch website. I would highly recommend buying wool from Cucumberpatch as I have ordered wool from them twice and the wool arrived the following day!
The pattern said 3 balls of wool were required but I actually only used two, and had some left over from that.
I lined the inside with some cotton fish fabric I bought in John Lewis.
I think it turned out rather well!
