It's new pattern time again!
This month's new release is Fabales, and as you can see, it's on special offer until the end of the week!
Fabales was designed for a gorgeous skein if hand-dyed aran weight yarn that Ginger Twist Studio sent me. Some time ago Jess and I got talking about the possibility of being Designer of the Month in the shop, and that's a thing right now - if you're in Edinburgh, do pop along and see the samples for yourself and try on a few Hats. From there a couple of gorgeous skeins of Jess's own hand-dyed yarn arrived, one of which has been this week's #hatseasoncometh giveaway, and another of which became this Hat.
I deliberately wanted something simple with this Hat, to show off a special skein and let the yarn do all the talking. Even with a solid or semi-solid, Fabales has just the right amount of detail. The leaves grow from the stem and work their way through to the crown, where the twisted stitch stems gather nicely into the crown. The yarn was really lovely to work with, and being British wool it's perfect for all supporters of home grown yarn!
The shape of the Hat is that comfy slouchy but not too slouchy look, comfy and wearable and easily at home dressed up. This is a style that suits just about anyone, and the pattern is also adjustable in length to help you get the right fit. 4 sizes are included, and you'll find the motif fully charted alongside the written instructions.
There are so many new designs on the horizon - I hope you're ready for the coming season's Hat knitting!
