New Pattern - the Addison Hat!


I've been knitting like crazy but can't show you much - samples that are secret until they are published, and presents that are secret until Christmas.  I've been wanting to show you all the fun but I just can't yet!  But finally, a little something for you.  It's been a while since I've had the inspiration and time to put together my own pattern.  I'm so excited about this hat!  I hope you like it too...

I've been teaching the beginning knitting class at my local yarn shop and approached the owner about a new pattern to teach - the last one was cute but has been on the schedule for a year or more.  She requested slipped stitch colorwork and I thought that was a great suggestion.  It's a little slouchy to keep you extra warm, not to mention stylish.  An i-cord is woven through the eyelets around the bottom allowing you to adjust the size, and finishes with a bow in the back.  My sister was in town this week so I took the opportunity to catch one of my favorite models! 

I've also knit up some cabled mittens but not sure what I'm going to do with that pattern just yet.  I hope to have the Addison Hat pattern published within the next seven days - I'll let you know!

Pattern:  Addison Hat
Size:  S/M, L
Yarn:  Cascade 220 in Vermeer Blue (9419),  Vandyke Brown (7822), and Beige (8021)
