Hat Challenge April

March 26, 2018


The Hat Challenge Project for April is Barley by tincanknits.  It is one of my favorite hat patterns and designers.  The pattern is written for baby through adult.  It can be knit more slouchy or less slouchy depending on your preference, and it's worsted weight so it knits up quickly.

Our samples left to right:

Berroco Comfort color 9768-Indigo
Cascade Eco Duo color 210-Teals

Giftmas Week 1

December 08, 2017


It's that time of year!  Including today, there are three Fridays until Christmas, so that means we are starting Giftmas - our three-week series of knits that can be done before Christmas!  Our first selection is a pair of mittens by tincanknits called Maize.  It knits up quickly in worsted weight and is sized for toddlers through adults to fit everyone on your list.  It uses a mix of ribbing and reverse stockinette.  We chose Cascade 220 Wave that has a gradual color shading to make it interesting to knit and adds visual interest to the finished mitten.
