I've got a new knitting pattern out for you all today! I'm so in love with this one you guys and guess what? That's right...it's a freebie!!! In honor of some special news I've got to share and a new yarn I've been crushing on, the YARNSTER hat is here!!!
Named & designed after my sweet friend arika, the YARNSTER hat is your new go to slouch hat! Featuring a lovely openwork mesh stitch, the YARNSTER shows off the gorgeous, subtle colorways of that fave yarn you're crushing on!
Made with malabrigo's new yarn - rastita, a super soft, slightly felted, dk weight with tons of yardage (you could maybe squeeze out 2 of these from 1 skein if you unravel your gauge swatch) this hat is comfy, stylish and fun to wear. It's also a quick knit which makes it a lovely gift for that special person in your life or as a special treat for yourself. it makes a great beginner/intermediate pattern for those of you who are looking to learn how to increase/decrease throughout a pattern and to knit in the round.
THE YARNSTER PATTERN FEATURES:
:: clear and easy to understand step by step instructions
:: bright & colorful photography
:: 1 page color PDF pattern
:: a great knitting experience
I hope you guys like it as much as I do! So you all ready to hear my special news? Yay! But wait...oops, you're going to have to wait till tomorrow!!! Hehe....thought I would tease ya just a little bit. I can give you a hint though.....you'll see a bit of it & a big hint if you download the pattern for YARNSTER.
Special thanks to my gorgeous sister Camille for modelling for me! Isn't she stunning? Have you tried rastita yet? Isn't it fab! Do you have a fave yarn that would work perfect for the YARNSTER? Do you love slouch hats as much as I do? I swear I wear a hat almost everyday. I'm definitely addicted :)
