Cool Stripes Hat

Hello friends! I know it's almost April, but I am still designing and adding to my February Head Wear Series. I would like to thank everyone who made one of the hats and shared that with me on Ravelry, Instagram or via Email. I feel very motivated now, and I still have many ideas to share.  This hat is very easy to make, I used a simplified version of the brioche pattern (I call it the Pseudo Brioche) to make it. This hat also comes in two sizes (see measurement details below). I hope you give it a try and make it today. stay home and stay safe everyone!

Follow My Lines Shawl

Hi Everyone! So, A little backstory about this shawl: I had this yarn for more than a year and a half, tried some ideas using it, But none of them were any good, and the yarn went back on my shelf. This month, I am into knitting lines, ribs and stripes, and got inspired by them, so here we are. Just follow my lines to get this shawl. I hope you try it, it is really easy to make if you follow the instructions with patience. Good luck!

Carrot Cake Beanie

Image
I thoroughly liked the reversible chevron pattern when I first came upon it, but I have yet to try it in any design I've made. The reason was that I saw it as complete pattern, with little room for me to improve on, or add my own touch. Also, many others have already made several nice designs out of it. So when I tried to make a beanie from this dotted tweed yarn that I had at hand, I decided to give this pattern a try. After several trials, I ended up with a reversible beanie that looks beautiful worn on both sides. It's very simple to make, just follow the (k, p) rows and add the (k3tog) to carve it up.
