I can’t believe it! Here we are, already nearing the end of another amazing year.
The last 2 designs this year are actually hats that I worked up over the summer that I, in the flurry of summertime fun, forgot to release! They come to you just in time for last minute Christmas knitting.
Both hats are unisex, which was important to me because not only do I like to knit up patterns for my hubby, but I also have 2 awesome brothers who love getting knits.
The first pattern is called Huntley . I had a great time playing with texture and directions for this hat. All of the texture is created with simple knit and purl stitches, which ends up having a satisfying and deceivingly complex appearance. They’ll never know how hard you didn’t really have to work!
I used Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in the Nest colorway. The tweedy texture felt so masculine and needed to be paired with a cozy flannel; something my brother wears frequently.
The second pattern available today is Carbondale.
I’m a colorwork newbie myself, so I can guarantee that this is a great way to get your feet wet with color. If you’re looking for some amazing colors to choose from, I highly recommend the suggested yarn, Colour Adventures. There are just so many combos to chose from and the soft yarn base does not disappoint!
Now, I know that many of us are preparing for the holidays. It’s my absolute favorite time of the year; celebrating the birth of Jesus, feasting on the holiday goodies, spending time with family, getting fabulous shopping deals and gift giving…I love the gift giving!
My girls got a very special gift this year….his name is Toby. Yes, this solidifies my status as a very cool mom….which incidentally, may or may not equate to a not so great wife! (Don’t worry- the husband is nearly recovered from the shock). Even the man of steel can not help but melt at those 2 sets of puppy dog eyes.
Now the really fun part! To celebrate Toby’s arrival, for my blog readers only, I am offering a coupon on these 2 new hats, through the end of the day on December 25th (CST). Both of these hats will be available for 50% off!
You can use the coupon code: Toby at checkout when you purchase either pattern (or both!) from my Ravelry store.
Happy and Safe holidays wherever you are dear Readers! God bless you and may all of your holiday wishes come true!
