New(ish) Design: Arboreal Beret!
This is a bit tardy, but since the cooler weather is finally setting in and all good knitters' minds are turning to to thoughts of wool, I thought it would be as good a time as any to tell you that I have a pattern in the most recent Twist Collective! But you're clever so you probably already knew that.
kind of outdoorsy and rustic, yes? makes you want to stand by barns.*
The hat itself is a pretty standard-issue beret, sized to be nice and slouchy, the tree pattern is comprised of a mixture of cables and twisted stitches with some bobbles thrown in to take the texture up another notch. Is the knitting world still divided when it comes to bobbles? I fall so firmly in the pro-bobble camp that I have completely lost track. They're like little nuggets of knitterly yumminess...mmm...
or contemplate your woodpile.*
The pattern takes about 5oz/140g of aran-weight yarn...in other words, just about what you have left over from knitting that sweater. See? You already have the yarn. If you have some size 8 dpns cluttering up the joint you're already 2 for 3.
she's happy because she's thinking about bobbles.*
