Crowning Glory

You know I can't resist a good crown!⁠ The first picture is the new Constellate variation (see how the fancy stitches are offset and on stockinette). The second picture is the original Constellate in a contrast color (see how they fancy stitches are all lined up on ribbing and looking shockingly sea urchin-esque). And the last one is the original Constellate in a single color (same as the second one, just a wee bit more subdued).⁠ I find them all hopelessly charming. Though to be fair, I tend to find almost every hat crown hopelessly charming. It's a known problem [...]

Ok, let's walk through the differences on these (video version over on insta if you want to see me flop things about)! On the original Constellate, our little bit of fancy business is all stacked up nice and neat in columns and set against a ribbed background. And on the variation, that same little bit of fancy business is instead offset and set against a stockinette background.  The ribbed background on the original lends itself to a folded brim, and the stockinette background to a rolled brim. You can work either one with either one color straight through or with [...]

Constellate (bonus version)

If you've been here for any time at all, you know I'm bad at restraint. I prefer exuberance and exploration and experimentation. I adore having time to play around and see where my whims take me. Which is how we ended up with this hat! I took Constellate, and the gorgeous little stitch it uses, and said 'huh, I wonder what would happen if...' Before I knew it, I had a very different version of the hat in my hands. And, since my lovely patrons are the ones who make it possible for me to spend time exploring things like [...]

Bad at restraint

Did I mention about how I'm...not known for my restraint? Because there's sort of an accidental bonus version of this hat... Well, sort of. It's the same nifty fancy stitch as on Constellate, just offset and worked on stockinette instead of lined up in columns and worked on ribbing, and with a rolled brim instead of a folded brim. Because again, bad at restraint. And generally entranced by variations. That'll be going out on Patreon as a little bonus some time next week (you know, assuming this hurricane doesn't do anything nefarious to me/my house/my life this weekend). Because the [...]

Which one?

Ok important questions here folks…single color or contrast color, which one is your favorite? I mean yes, picking a favorite feels like a crime, so perhaps it’s better to say which one do you want to make first. Because really, doing just one may prove surprisingly difficult! The pattern is Constellate and it’s up in all the usual places. The matching mitts will be coming soon. And there might sort of accidentally be another version of the hat headed out to folks on that other place here in the very near future. And it looks like you folks bought up [...]

Constellate is out on both ravelry and payhip! But it really shouldn't be this pretty. It just shouldn't. Nothing this easy should look so impressive. Yet somehow, it does, and I find myself completely unwilling to argue with anything so delightful.⁠ Instead, I find myself inclined to play with it. So far that's meant experimenting with a two color version (which I love even more than the single color version, a feat I didn't think possible). Oh and being hopelessly entranced by the wrong side of the fabric (the wrong side on the two color version still leaves me wondering [...]

Better in sets

Better in sets better in sets better in sets. I'm just always going to believe that knitted accessories are better in sets. Now, do I actually manage to wear all the pieces of a set at the same time? Um...sometimes? Occasionally? Ideally? But look, just knowing I have the option makes me happy. I do usually spend the winter with a hat jammed in one pocket of my coat and some mitts jammed in the other pocket, does that count? As soon as we manage to get a day where it is both overcast but not rainy and cool enough [...]

Arcane Bargain

Ahem. Why yes, yes that is rather charming. Bonus points for being the Exact Same Colors as the hydrangeas in my yard. Because clearly Seven Sisters Arts made some sort of arcane bargain with the fairies at some point and now knows the secret to all the best colors. ⁠ (Yes, it'll be out shortly! Likely that second full week in September, if we ever manage to get a day where the weather lets me get outside and get photos of them. I've got a Whole Big Stack of pieces to photograph for this one, but it needs to stop [...]
