f.o. : ardenwald.
I knit this Ardenwald Hat by Jared Flood in Brooklyn Tweed Arbor back this winter for my colleague. I was really pleased with this knit; plenty of interest but easy to memorize the cable pattern and the stitch definition in this fiber is gorgeous. It’s so soft, but keeps nice shape, and looks great on…
f.o.: skiff hat.
I did finish this Skiff Hat a long while back, but realized I never wore it or even photographed it because it was just a bit too big for my petite head. Enter my partner, the doc, who has a large head. The perfect fit. I loved this pattern. Knit up using two skeins of…
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 the…
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 it…
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 a…
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 keeping…
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, this…
f.o. | resist hat no.2
Yet another Resist Hat by Jess Schreibstein for Mild Woman. I love this one–knit up using two skeins of Knit Picks palette I had in my stash in the peony and oyster heather color ways. I could knit these in a million colors. See more of my resist hats here. Have you made one?
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 with…
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 the…
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 skein…
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 wool…
