What’s This, Another New Design?

Standard

Why yes, yes it is! Here, I would like to introduce Kaylee to you.

Using sport weight yarn and a textured chevron pattern, Kaylee allows a certain amount of breathability, while still creating a unique, comfy hat perfect for transitional seasons. I really love how the spiky area looks- very cute! Plus, the stitch definition provided by Wool of the Andes- a 100% wool yarn- will show off the chevron stitch perfectly. Check out some of the versions my test knitters made here– it looks really great in handpaints, variegated, and striped yarns, too!

Kaylee and my roomie

The hat is sized from a perfectly adorable baby topper all the way up to a fashionably chic adult large. baby (child’s small, teen, adult small, adult large)= 13” (16”, 18.5”, 21”, 24”). The pattern includes both written and charted directions for the body and decreases of the hat.

Kaylee and me. Ok, we passed the sunglasses around- it was pretty sunny!

This pattern is made in conjunction with the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program. Although Knit Picks hasn’t gotten the pattern up yet, you can still find it on ravelry here. For this first week (until 1/4/12) it will be available for FREE! After that, it will go up to a pretty reasonable $1.99.

New Design! C’Mon Baby (Twist and Slouch)

Standard

Spiraling, from the back!

I have a new pattern out! The C’Mon Baby (Twist and Slouch) hat is a slouchy beret perfect for the hipster in all of us. The lacey, twisting rib will catch the knitter’s attention without being too difficult to remember. Plus, it creates a nice looking hat! I’m particularly in love with the spiral-y thing on the crown.

Side view. My awesome roommate was modeling in Colonial Williamsburg- super fun!

You will need about 80g of worsted weight yarn to complete the project. I recommend anything with some drape. Alpaca blends, like Cascade’s Alpaca Lana D’Oro, work really well. It is a bit big (the model has a larger head…) so pay attention to guage and don’t be afraid of going down a needle size.

Laughing at my photography antics- "put the hat in the light!"
