New Pattern: Sweet Bea

Introducing my latest knitting pattern, Sweet Bea. This hat features a one-row-per-color stripe using Black Trillium Fibres Pebble Worsted and has several textural features including a lattice stitch brim, slipped stitch highlights and a cute (and optional) top knot. The mild conical shape adds a light-hearted touch. The versatile nature of this hat allows for lots of color experimentation, from the very bright combined with the very dark to similar colors and shades. The pattern has instructions for four sizes and gives clear written instructions for both the brim texture and the alternating colors and slipped stitches in the main portion of the hat. This is a relatively easy pattern, you'll need to be familiar with I-cord, knitting, purling, reducing and slipping stitches.

Scroll Shawl

The other day, my dear friend Steff and I had a windy but productive photo shoot at a nearby park which finally yielded the shots I needed publish a long-overdue shawl pattern.  Introducing Scroll: Parchment and some Purple I don't remember Having finally edited the pattern to inlcude the photos, I published the pattern via Ravelry today. Here's another version my dear pal Bonnie knit up for the pattern: Colorways: Squeeze & Star She used two skeins of Bison Sock, one of "Star" and one of "Squeeze". I love the way the orange skein brings out the hint of orange in Star's color! The pattern calls for two contrasting 100 gram skeins of sock or fingering weight yarn, specifically Merilon, Pebble or Lilt. You'll need a set of US 5 circulars. This shawl is a triangular top-down knit with a fluttery ruffle and very easy bind off. Happy knitting!
