As we draw ever closer to the publication of the Elemental collection, you'll be wanting to make sure you have your yarn!

Below is an image of the front cover of each single pattern. Exactly the same info will be included in the book. The yardage calculations include a tolerance (about 10%) and the swatch can be knit in any colour... in fact, once you've made one, you won't need to reswatch. From each image you can also click through to the pattern's own page, where all the info is laid out in my usual way.

The yarn used is Bloomsbury DK from The Yarn Collective. I'll do a proper review another day, but suffice to say this yarn is delicious! It has amazing stitch definition, a wonderful shine and bounces back despite repeated frogging. Carol Feller curated these colours, and they work so well together.

As I've mentioned before, these patterns are graded through gauge, and fine adjustments in needle size is all that's needed. You will need to swatch before starting your first Hat, and that will help to determine size - slouch as well as fit. Do have a look to at the notes about the size the model is wearing, and her head size - Beth was tiny! The sample size does fit on my head (garter stitch is way stretchier than it ought to be) but they fit like a skinny beanie, without slouch, so do consider what style you prefer to wear. There is also the option of working fewer or more panels, too.

Fear not though, as there will be a Ravelry discussion thread for each Hat, so you'll be able to pop over and ask away. I haven't planned a KAL for these Hats as I've been so busy with everything else, but I don't see why we can't knit along together during September?
