Interweave has just published a lovely new collection of hats in The Knitted Hat Book, and my pattern for the Scoop Brimmed Hat is included in the collection! I wanted to design a hat that worked for transitional weather too, so I chose an allover mesh stitch pattern that’s simple to knit. It’s a great hat to spring and fall, when some of us still want to wear a hat. This hat just 1 lovely skein of Dream in Color Classy with Cashmere, which is ridiculously soft and beautiful, and worth every cent.

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!
Berroco’s Portfolio Vol. 2 has just been released, and I have 2 patterns in it!
The Four Winds Hat features simple cables that pop against a garter-stitch background, with cozy ear flaps. It takes just 2 skeins of Berroco Vintage Chunky and knits up quickly! The pattern can be purchased individually, or as part of the whole collection on Ravelry here.
The Arcadia Poncho features beautiful mirrored cables and a generous garter-stitch cowl. This one is knit in worsted-weight Berroco Vintage. It’s also available individually, or as part of the collection here.
