new pattern!

that’s right– the pattern kit for my new Helmet Hat is available exclusively through String Yarns. and the kit is 45% off right now so if its as cold where you are as it is here in nyc, now is the time to get yourself a new cashmere hat.

here’s the info:

materials: (the kit contains only pattern and yarn– not needles or accessories)

-4 skeins of rowan cashmere tweed (90% cashmere/10% silk, 60 yds, 25g)

-US size 9 16″ circular needle and  DPNs or size needed to obtain gauge

-four stitch markers in contrasting colors

-tapestry needle


16 sts/4″ in stockinette stitch

there have been requests for a baby version so that may very well be up next!

by the way, this pattern is available only with purchase of yarn from String. i won’t be selling it or distributing it independently of them.

oh. and while i’m here i might as well add some info from the last post.

-the first gloves/hat are a new set for the DH– the gloves say “live free” across the knuckles and have outlines of porcupines on the tops, a la the free state project. they’re knit in Prism Merino Mia on size US 1 and 2’s. the matching hat is made with Prism Symphony and has “ama-gi” embroidered on the back in sanskrit.

-the panta headband is knit in Trendsetter Handspun Cashmere in an alteration of the drops pattern.  i just went until i ran out of yarn, so it’s smaller than the original.

-the slouchy hat was just a quick top-down knit, to see how far a skein of Ella Rae Extrafine Heathers would go. turns out… not far enough to make a decently sized hat. so i added another color. it’s just a basic, roll-up brim slouchy hat.

that’s about it. i’ve got some more stuff in the works but at least for now… gotta run to class. sigh.
