Happy New Year! As 2022 starts off, I’m starting by building back my finished hat stacks. I’ve started a tradition of bringing my hat bins

I don’t have the tools I need to do real cable knitting yet so I thought I’d start the new year by creating a “faux cable” look as an entry-level start to 2020. I’ve watched videos explaining a back loop “twist stitch” that creates a “faux knit cable” and I spent New Year’s Day swatching, trying several variations, frogging and re-trying that ended with creation of this faux-cable beanie to share and ring in the new year. Cheers! ***There is a PDF version of this pattern available on Ravelry.
Happy New Year – Starting off 2020 playing with some color blocking. Sticking with Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick because I just love the way it knits up and I still have more colors to try!! ** An Ad-Free PDF version of this pattern is available to download on Ravelry.
The special inspiration to make this hat comes from a friend’s granddaughter who loves Poppy Troll. I started searching for yarn that would fit the need for hippy style! Enter my new favorite indulgence: Malabrigo Rasta yarn. The yarn is amazing so I kept the stitches simple.
