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
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.
