for Tinker Creek Handknits 2016
3 Caroline in my Mind
Need matching hat and gloves? Get them here! Two patterns are included in my design, a slouchy beanie hat and fingerless gloves to match. They are each written in three sizes, to fit a child age 8 and above, tweens, ladies and men.
In the photos shown, the model is wearing Size Small, Cascade Eco in the colorway #9332 Sapphire.The adult model is wearing Size Medium, Cascade Eco in the colorway #8010 Ecru.
So often, my knitting patterns are inspired by individual people in my life; for example, Caroline. She's a delightful teenager who makes frequent visits to our house. I have 11, 13 and 15 year-old daughters who, along with Caroline, make a lot of noise, but also offer me valuable "up to the minute" fashion advice for designing handknits. For example, they'll make sure my beanie design has just the right amount of slouch, like the one in this pattern, and that the model wears it pushed back, just so.
Both hat and mitts are worked in the round from the bottom up. You'll start with ribbing worked in one needle size smaller than the body, to make the cuffs snug around your head and wrists. There are both charts and written instructions for the pattern stitch, a knit and purl combination that results in a beautiful texture on the hat and mitts. The yarn is from Cascade Eco, 100% Peruvian Highland wool which has been minimally processed and undyed. I hope you enjoy knitting up these two patterns for matching hat and fingerless gloves, created with none other than Caroline as my design consultant!
