The latest design for the Twisted Woolly Toppers collection:
I'm really pleased with this design, and doesn't it look so cute on Silvia! Being committed to grading Hat patterns into a decent range of sizes can make working with chunky or complex cables difficult, and this Hat offers a good solution. Because of it's simplicity and minimal shaping it can be worked in just about any size, to fit any head. The pattern is currently graded in 4 sizes, which covers a wide range, although I am considering making it into a custom build pattern.
It's knitted in a new Merino DK from UK Alpaca - so new it isn't even listed on their website yet! The yarn is spun in the UK, and as soon as I have more details I will let you know. It's a sturdy yarn, with all the softness of merino maintained, and gives great stitch definition.
Twisted Woolly Toppers has slowed down in production, mostly because I've been doing lots of work for magazines and yarn companies ('tis the season for woolly Hats after all) and they keep nabbing my new designs! I have been good and chosen to publish with companies where I maintain my rights and the company has an exclusivity period (more about that in another post), so the designs I can't show you just yet will be self published at some point, but not in this collection. Some of these secret designs will be revealed over the next month or so, and I can't wait to show you how much has really been going on behind the scenes!
