I designed this pattern for a special baby girl named Kaiya Mei. This Fair Isle motif is intended to fade gradually and randomly from the first color to the second. I chose a multi-color yarn with a natural main color to soften the look, but I think two solid and contrasting colors would work great, too. Get creative!
Q for You: What's your peak knitting experience? - Fringe Association
It occurs to me that there are countless possible notions of what makes for a peak knitting experience. Maybe it’s pulling off something you didn’t think you were capable of. Maybe it’s the anticipation of a gift recipient’s response. Or maybe it’s making a thing that proves to be endlessly comforting or useful to you […]
The design for Passerine Hat emerged out of a love for birds and fascination with their behavior and traits. Named for the order of birds characterized by perching habits, this fitted hat is worked seamlessly in the round, from ribbing to crown. It features a stranded bird motif in two contrasting colors and a crisp ribbing with a contrasting color accent.
I made this hat as an addition to a “multidirectional scarf” made from the same yarn. I wanted something that went well with the garter stitch and enhanced the long colour runs of the yarn. This pattern is available in English.
Aspyn pattern by Melissa Schaschwary
I absolutely love snuggly things, and while the snuggles I get from the people I love take first place, a cozy, cabled knit comes in not far behind.
Named for the experimental ship camouflage the British designed in WWI that it resembles, the Dazzle hat looks more complicated than it actually is! Knitted using fun, easy garter stitch short row stripes, this hat offers many options to play with color and works up super fast. Try it in two colors, or break out a four-color gradient set or ombré sock blank paired with a main color for a cool ombré effect. Also it works great for using up scraps!
I'm Lichen This Hat
This cute, slouchy hat has a ruched back with a cable for a bit of extra interest. To make it, you’ll need one 16” circular needle in size US 10, one in size US 11, and a set of double pointed needles, also in size US 11. Oh, and roughly 125 yards of chunky weight yarn!
