Sometimes, those little leftover bits of special yarn beg to be knit up into something special. I’ve been hoarding my worsted-weight Plucky Knitter leftovers, for just this kind of thing.
Meet Bright Spot, a worsted-weight fair isle hat that is a great use for those leftover bits of hand dyed yarns I used a black for the background, so it would mimic stained glass.
I finished it with a faux fur pompon, but you could make your own and use up even more leftover yarn!
This pattern is 50% off (no code required), until September 20th, 2016! You can purchase it here.
Quince and Co’s latest design team collection, Glen, has been released and I designed 2 of the 4 pieces! Alba is a simple fingering-weight colorwork hat that uses lovely Finch, leaving you tons of options for beautiful color combinations.
Helga is a tunic-length pullover with a hood and pockets, because what’s cozier than that? It uses 2 strands of Chickadee, held together, for a beautiful marled look and a heavy-worsted gauge (4.25 sts/inch) that makes it quick-to-knit!
Both patterns are available individually on Ravelry: Alba and Helga, or as part of the collection here.
