My newest sport weight hat patterns are Nightwood and Solain. Nightwood uses 2 skeins of Barrett Wool Co Woolens, shown in Inkwell and Putty. Solain uses 1 skein of Woolens in Loam, and a skein of Spincycle Yarns Dyed in the Wool in Good Omen. …
Ever have one of those skeins of yarn that is just so beautiful, that you agonize over what to make with it? This yarn, Fibre Co Cumbria, is a lovely 90% wool, 10% mohair, and my absolute favorite shade of yellow that goes perfectly with my Robin’s egg blue Agnes sweater. But, I ripped and re-knit this skein so many times, trying to make a hat design that I’d wear all the time. Finally, I realized that what I really wanted was the texture of simple knits and purls, so that’s what I went with. We’ve been experiencing sub-zero temps in Massachusetts this week, and this hat has been a permanent fixture on my freezing skull. I LOVE it.
First Night uses just 1 skein of Cumbria, and is a combination of just knits and purls for the design, finished with basic decreases. The pattern is both written out and charted. And, if you use the code NEW at checkout on Ravelry, it’ll take 50% off your purchase until January 10th. See First Night on Ravelry.

My oldest daughter is starting preschool very soon, and she’s been asking me to knit her some new things. The program has a big outdoor component, so I let that be the inspiration for my design. 3-year-olds can have some very strong opinions about clothing, …
