Reversible Hat – January 2018 Release

Sherry – reversible hat with floral pattern

Playful integration of daisy stitches and simple twisted ribs makes the Sherry hat a fun quick knit. Use different colors for Sherry and let the motifs translate to dainty blooms, carefree dandelions, spiky seedpods or tropical palm trees. You can easily turn the slouchy hat into a close fit beanie by knitting it shorter or simply wearing it folded for a pretty brim. The decorative backside also makes for a pert reversible hat. Knitted seamlessly in the round from the bottom up, the hat stretches to accommodate most adult heads.

Another Jordan

Just finished making the Jordan sleeveless pineapple top with Euroflax Sport in Lavender. I’m always amazed by how fast this top comes together. The Allegoro yarn used for the pattern has been discontinued for a while now, I’m happy to have found a delightful substitute for it.

Wear the Jordan top for the cold weather too, why not? 😀

Floral Cable Cardigan – October 2017 Release

Amelie – floral cable cardigan

Decorative cables and bobbles, reminiscent of entwining vines with flowering buds, adorn the Amelie cardigan.

The body and sleeves of Amelie are worked flat in separate pieces from the bottom up, making the cabling and compound raglan simple to track.
