Greetings my fellow Knitters! this is the third project in my February head wear series, and it incorporates the simple braid pattern. I made it available in three different sizes (see measurements below), and experienced knitting it in multiple colors to show how the pattern would look.

Meshy Squishy Toque

Image
As my followers know, every so often I like to grab scrap yarn from my stash, and make small projects just for fun, also to take a break from long-term projects. So since my theme for February is hats, it's time to make use of that scrap yarn. These two hats are knitted using what's left from my Uniflower baby blanket. The yarn is so fluffy and soft, and the pattern is very simple that you will finish knitting in no time. Remember, Spring is coming, so here I present you with this quick-to-knit, late-winter piece to keep warm until then.

Night Coffee Hat

Image
February nights are really cold, so wearing hats is a must. This month's theme is hats; right now I'm interested in designing knitted head-wear, like beanies or slouchies. For my first hat design, I'm using the seersucker pattern. It's very simple to knit and has a nice baklava pattern. Plus, it only takes a couple of hours to finish. I made one for my husband and he loved it, and I hope you will like it too!

Valentines' Wavy Scarf

Image
Now that Christmas is over, but winter is yet to leave us, I looked up at 2020's calendar for the next event to knit for. Valentine's day is at the door, and since the Brioche stitch is my current favorite, I knitted this scarf, the third and last scarf of this season I knit using this stitch. I made it for my son this time, I hope you like it. I think it would be the perfect handmade gift for a guy that you can make for next month. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Happy New Year everyone!
Gladly posting my first project of 2020. It is inspired by my previous scarf that employed the Brioche stitch, which turned out to be one of my favorite patterns of last year. 
I'm in the process of making a matching hat, which will be posted soon, so stay tuned.
