A cool hat for cold days

We were watching AMC’s Turn a while ago, and commenting about how cool-yet-utilitarian main character Abe Woodull’s clearly hand-knit slouchy toque was. I searched online for patterns, found an interesting blog post and a discussion about spelling, but no patterns that looked exactly right.

Abe’s hat looked like it might be a bit itchy, but I thought it would be okay to be slightly less authentic in that regard, and got some super-cozy Woolfolk SNO to make this hat. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out!

It’s equally fashionable on men and women!

 

 

 

 

ILT is here

When I first unwrapped the package of  LUFT that arrived by post last summer, I swooned. Literally.

And every stitch I made when working on this new design was a pleasure.

I’m very honoured and excited to be working with Woolfolk on this project. I love that their yarn is ethically-sourced, and have a great appreciation for their aesthetic.

They named this oversized pullover ILT, which means “oxygen” in Danish.  All the project details are here.
