f.o. : newspaper print roku hat.

When you live in New England, you can never own too many hats, right? This is my mantra every fall, as the cooler climes start to head in and I begin to think about updating my knits. Of course, I always make my own hats and scarves. My needles have been no stranger to theContinue reading “f.o. : newspaper print roku hat.”

wip: skiff hat.

I finally cast on (and finished!) the Skiff Hat. I used Brooklyn Tweed Shelter, as the pattern calls for, in the artifact color way. It’s a deep forest green and I love it. Since finishing, I haven’t yet snapped it or worn it because I wonder if it’s too large for my head. Does itContinue reading “wip: skiff hat.”

f.o.: galloway hat.

This hat! What a dream to knit. I bought a kit to make it from Brooklyn Tweed because I liked the idea of having just the right amount of yarn for the pattern, but I ended up having some extra of the main color way because I didn’t add a pom pom. This is aContinue reading “f.o.: galloway hat.”

f.o.: resist hat #4.

This one is my best yet. I think my tension was really spot on and this hat shines if you actually knit it up using the suggested yarn–Quince and Co. Finch. This one used sabine as the main color and canvas as the contrasting. The dark and light really pop! so this one, I’m keepingContinue reading “f.o.: resist hat #4.”

wip | (yet another) resist hat.

I love these Resist hats. I’ve knit four of them already–so why not a fifth? This one is knit using Quince and Co. Finch in sabine for the main color and canvas for the contrasting. This hat knits up really quick, so if you’re looking for some handmade holiday items as we wind down, thisContinue reading “wip | (yet another) resist hat.”

f.o. | resist hat no. 1

I have been eyeing this Resist Hat by Mild Woman for about a year–and the pattern was finally released last month. So of course, I dropped everything currently on the needles and knit this one up in a day. The main color is Brooklyn Tweed Loft in soot and the color work is done withContinue reading “f.o. | resist hat no. 1”

f.o. | withrow hat.

This is, by far, one of my favorite finish off’s so far this year. I know we are only a few weeks into 2018, but I can already tell this hat is going to remain a favorite as I add to the f.o. catalog. Withrow is a brilliant color work hat that’s featured in theContinue reading “f.o. | withrow hat.”

f.o. | karusellen.

I’ve made this hat before and loved it. So, when you love something, go for it again, right? For some reason, while I love pom poms, I opted against one for these hats and am pleased with the end result. Pattern is Karusellen by Erica Smith and this version is knit up using one skeinContinue reading “f.o. | karusellen.”

f.o. | striped hats.

The Striped Hats pattern by Quince and Co. is for sure my favorite pattern this winter. It’s simple, easy to memorize so the project is good for travel or knitting in public, and they knit up in a day or two. Plus, the color combinations are endless and you don’t need large amounts of woolContinue reading “f.o. | striped hats.”

f.o. | striped hat.

Back in 2013, I bought several skeins of Quince and Co. lark for their Striped Hat pattern. For some reason, they went in one of my stash bins to languish for four years. I have no idea why this project got away from me for so long. Usually, in these cases, I rediscover the yarnContinue reading “f.o. | striped hat.”

woolens | seeds hat.

This is my finished Seeds Hat from Jared Flood’s (of the always brilliant Brooklyn Tweed) book Woolens, which came out last fall. Despite scooping up the book as soon as it was released, it wasn’t until last week that I finally picked my first project. Seeds hat, it is. There are a number of otherContinue reading “woolens | seeds hat.”
