HARO SHAWL - NEW PATTERN

MEET HARO

HARO is the newest shawl pattern of mine for this year's Hinterland Straits 2017 collection! Haro is meant to be curled up and snuggled into. It's the shawl you reach for on blustery days, for seaside strolls & chilly nights, and on days you just need a knit hug. 

HARO features a half-hap shawl construction. Worked in two colours of Hinterland Range, the Haro shawl is a stunning composition of openwork, texture, and colourshifts. The fabric of this generously-sized shawl is soft and cozy, with repeated stripes that create beautiful swirls reminiscent of cascading waves when wrapped for warmth.

NEW FREE PATTERN || FARBE COWL!

Who's in the mood for a new free pattern? Yay! I'm so excited to show you all the FARBE Cowl!



DOWNLOAD THE FREE FARBE COWL PATTERN

It's been getting pretty cold over here on Vancouver Island and I've been craving a new super chunky cowl! I adore color blocking and thought it would be fun to whip up a new free pattern for you all showcasing just that!

The FARBE Cowl is warm & cozy, fast to knit up and adds a great pop to your fall/winter wardrobe! It's also a great beginner pattern! You can access the FREE download for FARBE on Ravelry, in our VeryShannon Shop or via direct download HERE.



I love the combo of black and white and think it pairs so nicely with my winter wardrobe. The FARBE Cowl would look great in so many color combos! You could add some fun stripes or a 3rd color! Lots of options for you to add your special touch to your FARBE Cowl.  It's knit up in a super bulky weight yarn on large needles for a nice drape and it works up in just a few hours! Can't beat that during gift giving time!

If you're a beginner knitter don't be scared of FARBE. This is literally plain knitting but you get to learn 2 new techniques that are a great asset for any knitter's skill set - the Provisional Crochet Cast-On and the Kitchener Stitch. Both look way harder than they are and once you try them you will find yourself using them all the time. They allow you, in this pattern, to knit flat so you can customize how long/wide you'd like your cowl to be and then seam your ends easily and invisibly when you are done. The free pattern includes visual links to learn how to implement both of these techniques.

I was so excited & thankful to have my lovely friend Rebecca (of the blog Nook) to be my model for me again. You may recognize her from both the Lansbury and Mallory cowl patterns. She's one of the fastest knitters I know! She's a hard working product and sample knitter and a sweetheart! We drove down to one of my fave beaches for this photoshoot. I owe her one as it was freezing cold out that day! The sun was out and it sure was gorgeous but darn was it cold! Good thing she was wearing the FARBE Cowl!

I hope you all enjoy this new pattern and I can't wait to see "your" version of the FARBE Cowl! Bring on the color blocking! What yarn/color combos will you use for your FARBE Cowl? Don't forget to use #farbecowl on social media to tag your projects!

PATTERN || THE KEATON HAT (CHILD VERSION)

Yesterday I released my new hat pattern KEATON and couldn't resist showing some pics of my little one wearing her KEATON hat! My heart just melts. There is something so adorable about a kid in a chunky slouch hat! Adorable!!!!



KEATON is available in 6 sizes - baby, toddler, child/teen, adult s, adult m & adult l! Wahoo! You can make one for every one in your family & all your friends too!

Tons of colors, stripe 'em, color block 'em, add a pom pom or make one without - doesn't matter - they are all fun! Plus this is an awesome beginner pattern and so quick to make it's ideal for gift knitting!



This is the first hat my husband and both kids have ever asked me for. It's a Christmas miracle! Now if you are a knitter you will understand how much this means. I was so excited that I have at least 2-3 more KEATON's ready to go over holiday break! I think I may need to get a family portrait with us all wearing them...that would be so dorky but also hilariously cool...lmao.


THE KEATON HAT PATTERN FEATURES:


:: clear and easy to understand instructions

:: bright & colorful photography

:: 6 sizes - Baby, Toddler, Child/Teen, Adult S, Adult M & Adult L

:: 2 page color PDF pattern

:: a great knitting experience

KEATON is available to purchase at the following:

  1. RAVELRY 
  2.  ETSY 
  3. VERY SHANNON


I'm dying to see some of your kidlet KEATON's pop up! Make sure you share pics when you are done making yours!!!!

What yarn would you make your KEATON in? Color? For who? Let's chat knitting! It's Friday!!! Wishing you all a wonderful, fun, hug, snuggles, laughs - filled kind of weekend topped off with coffee, tea and lots of making :)

NEW PATTERN || KEATON HAT PATTERN!!

I've found my new favorite hat. You know the one that you want to make in 10 colors and actually find yourself hoping the weather stays cold so you can wear all the time? That's the one.


keatonleadlabel.png

The KEATON hat is here! And guess what - this bulky weight ribbed hat comes in sizes Baby, Toddler, Child/Teen, Adult S, Adult M & Adult L!!! Wahoo! Now you can make one for all your friends and family and just in time for xmas cause this hat is quick, fast and super easy! Takes 120yds or less (including pom pom) and knits up with so much squish I have it on word that one of my testers even slept in hers!!! 



I've been thinking for a while now that my Mallory Cowl needed a hat to go with it. I have so many sewers wanting to learn how to knit and other new knitters needing a great easy hat to make that I just knew KEATON would be a great go to pattern for them.

The pattern is written in an easy format, with technique options, a great cast on to learn, links to helpful videos and more! Plus it's ONLY $1.99! Can't go wrong! I mean really....who doesn't love a pom pom right? And a pom pom on a slouch hat is a win win in my book. I suck at making pom pom's but I still love 'em. 

I really want new knitters to feel brave and embrace learning new techniques. Don't be scared - just jump in! That's how we all learn and I'm still learning too! It's fun, I promise and I'll be there cheering you on! Plus if you are a more experienced knitter this is a great hat to whip up for kicks and style. You can easily make it more/less slouchy, mix up colors, stripe it...and more! 



I used Quince and Co.'s Puffin (shown in Clay) for the one without the pom pom (adult sized) (you all know how much I adore Quince and Co!) and the others were both in Patons Classic Wool Roving (shown in Taupe and Plum) which has the exact same gauge for me! Wahoo! You seriously can't go wrong with either of these yarns! Both are great bulky, super soft and squishy yarns! But don't worry, KEATON looks great on other types of bulky too! My testers tried a variety of bulky yarns and they all looked just as good!


THE KEATON PATTERN FEATURES THE FOLLOWING:


:: clear and easy to understand instructions

:: bright & colorful photography

:: 6 sizes - Baby, Toddler, Child/Teen, Adult S, Adult M & Adult L

:: 2 page color PDF pattern

:: a great knitting experience

KEATON is available to purchase at the following:

  1. RAVELRY 
  2.  ETSY 
  3. VERY SHANNON


But wait...aren't my models just so darn purdy? I owe them so bad. It was freeeeeeeeezing cold when we did our photo shoot and Carly of the blog "Style Snapshot" and Kate of "Victoria's Wardrobe" so kindly agreed to come out and brave the weather for me. These 2 stylish gals are friends and fashion bloggers in the city I live. I loooovvve the KEATON on them. I asked them to wear what they would wear with the hat and I love how the overall look turned out! So fun! Plus I have to admit I want to steal Carly's boots and Kate's jacket....heck I want both their outfits. I owe ya one ladies - you're both stunning! Be sure to check out both of their blogs for upcoming posts on what they wore with the hats.

Want to see the smaller version? You can see pics of the child version here. You can also see more pics on www.veryshannon.com. I've already gotten a request from the girls for 2 more and 1 for the hubby and another for me. I see lots and lots of ribbing in my future. Good thing they are fast to make :)

NEW PATTERN || DREIECKE HAT

NEW PATTERN  ||  DREIECKE HAT

I've got a thing for triangles at the moment.  They have seemed to occupy my mind since my zig zag quilt. In the fall i started sketching a hat that had triangles on it. But not any kind of triangle...some that resembled hst's.  Then the DREIECKE hat was born. I really love that I am inspired by sewing in my knitting and inspired by my knitting in my sewing.  They seem to go hand in hand like that...must be the gemini in me.
