Living the Knit Life


New Pattern

My latest hat pattern, Noggin just went live on Ravelry.

I designed this hat to show off the beautiful variations in hand-dyed  and variegated yarn with short colour repeats.

This is a great pattern for that one skein of fingering weight, aritisan yarn in your stash that you want to show off but aren't sure how - this simple pattern lets the yarn shine without any texture or stitch patterns to compete with its beauty.  The contrast of vertical stripes against the horizontal stripes is interesting and a little unexpected

Instructions are included for a child-size hat and a teen/adult size hat in both beanie and slouchy style.

The brim of the child size hat measures 14 inches/ 38 centimetres unstretched.  The brim of the teen/adult size hat meaures 18 inches/ 45 centimetres unstretched - measured flat before grafting.

I was able to make both of these hats - an adult sized slouchy and a kids beanie with one 100gram skein of yarn and still have enough yarn left over for a pom pom!
I dyed the yarn used in the sample myself - with the help of Anna my friend any Dyeing guru over at Mythic Yarn.

Noggin is 50% off until Midnight EST on Wednesday December 17th, 2014!!!
