Stay Warm This Winter With The Fashion Forward Hat

It’s time for a new hat pattern and a promo to go with it! Meet the Fashion Forward Hat. It matches nicely with the Fashion Forward Cowl or it does just fine on its own. It has a nice relaxed slouch with a snug ribbed brim that doesn’t slide off. Add a big pom pom and you’ll be right in style, not to mention nice and warm! Get the pattern this week – before midnight on Friday – and get 30% off with the coupon code honeycomb. Check it out here.

This hat is designed in the soft and cozy Cascade 220 Superwash Aran and the colour shown is Feather Grey. One skein is required plus an additional colour for the contrasting stripe and the pom pom. I used my leftover  Cascade Yarns Eco Cloud in charcoal from my Fashion Forward Cowl, making a matched set.

As always, my test knitters were great fun to work with. Check out their wonderful colour combos here and find out how we solved the problem of the increase holes. More about that in my next post!

I Wish I Had Time To Knit This – my updated list!

It was over a year ago when I first posted here about my ‘I Wish I Had Time To Knit This’ list. This was my list:

I’m pretty flexible and I believe that any good to-do list is a work in progress. So, I think it’s time to revise the list. Oh, and I also believe in adding things to my to-do list that I have already done so that I can have the satisfaction of crossing them off and feeling that I accomplished something. So here it is:

That felt good! Now, here are two new additions to the list that I’m really excited about:

My new year knitting goal is to knit more sweaters for myself. It’s been more than 3 years since I knitted a sweater. I want to learn a variety of new-to-me sweater knitting techniques. Maybe this will lead to some sweater designs in my future? We’ll see!
