I have been a busy busy bee - both at mothering/wife-ing and knitting.
For the next few days I am going to post a ton, as I have recently been publishing new pattern (or revamping old ones). I am going to do a few posts a day (this will make my life much easier later).
Let's begin: How bout at the top, with a top down beret.
Nah; I'll begin with a stranded fake isle hat.
XOXO Cap: A Fake Isle Charted Hat
Moonlight Stitches Creation by:
This cap offers two designs to try out an easy
approach to stranded knitting. Using worsted
weight yarn in a solid and a self striping
colorway, these charts are inserted into a classic
cap for a stunning effect as the self striping yarn
Gauge: 4 sts./in in St.st. with solid color (MC).
Size: One size fits most (20-22” heads)
Materials: 110 yds of a solid (MC) worsted
weight yarn and 110 yds of a self striping (CC)
worsted yarn (the sample was worked in
Cascade 220 and in Noro Kureyon); US 7
16” Circular needle, US 8 16” Circular needle,
a set of US 8 DPNs; stitch markers.
Note: Fake Isle is really fair isle - but it sounds less scary and is a touch easier because the yarn does the hard work.
