Winter Dusk Hat
Through the vision of a hat design delicately adorned with star motifs and inspiration from Wool Days Scout yarn, the Winter Dusk Hat pattern has been created. I recommend knitting yours with Scout too, although any 100g skein of DK weight yarn from your stash will work. Perhaps surprisingly, the star motifs on this hat are performed without any cabling, making this hat quick and easy to knit. Winter Dusk will become your go-to accessory for chilly days, keeping you cozy and stylish whatever…
Sedge pattern by Bristol Ivy
Mitts and colorwork go hand in hand. In Bristol Ivy’s Sedge mitts, pretty botanical motifs in two colors of fingering-weight Finch grace the long length of these pretty hand warmers, while fingers are free to remain useful for hands-on activities.
Molecular Orbitals Socks
This pattern was inspired by the shape of Molecular Orbitals (which show the distribution of electrons in a molecule) and the patterning is achieved via knits and purls.
Crespo is one of the main streets in Cuenca, Ecuador. If you need to walk everywhere walk in style these springy socks will take you where you want to go. The circle in the stitch pattern represents the many round-a-bouts in the area.
I’ve been fascinated with the idea of making a pair of socks in which the two socks are knitted in different directions. This pair features a short-row heel and toe, with the first sock knitted from the top down and the second sock knitted from the toe up. No more “second sock syndrome” because you don’t knit the same sock twice!
Passerine Hat pattern by Erica Heusser
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.
Dan the Plug'Ole
Dan the Plug’ole is a fun hat, with alternating sections of ribbing and reverse stocking stitch, separated by diagonally spiralling arms of eyelets, that gracefully work their way round the hat, meeting at a final nexus at the centre of the crown. The overall effect is one of movement and exuberance, and can be worn as a full-on slouchy hat, or more sleek and fitted, with an up-turned brim.
The October Mittens are inspired by the dried twig and bud floral decorations that adorn homes in the autumn and winter. The mittens are dense and warm but not too thick. As such, they are perfectly suited for brisk morning walks to school and work before the weather turns frigid and blustery. The color, Buttermere, was chosen for its brightness, which looks great against the ruddy color of falling leaves.
Sumac is a simple staghorn cable beanie. Named for the staghorn sumac, this is the perfect beanie for keeping the cold winter winds off you your ears. This is a great pattern for first time cable users as they are simple and repetitive.
