henny hat

Have you seen Liesl's first pattern, the Henny Hat? It's beautiful. It has a simple lace pattern and just the right amount of slouch. The pattern is well written and includes both charted and written directions. It's a quick knit too, so it's perfect if you're looking for a project to curl up with this weekend.

I was lucky enough to be able to test the hat pattern and a skein of Buckaloo View black walnut yarn. I'm smitten with the rich caramel color the black walnuts gave to this wool-alpaca blend and can't wait until Liesl opens her shop so I can get my hands on some more. Wouldn't this yarn look great as a cardigan?

Have you tried any new patterns lately? I'm excited about Canopy, Charcoal & Ash, and the colorwork patterns in the latest issue of Pom Pom Quarterly.

  2. Thank you, Allison! I'm so glad you enjoyed the pattern and the yarn.
    I'm joining in the Canopy KAL and am so excited. I really couldn't resist it! I didn't think I'd be able to but with all of the figuring and math and whatnot required for the designs I'm working on, it'll be a treat to take breaks and instead *follow* a pattern.

  3. It looks stunning, Allison! The yarn would look great for a cardigan indeed.

  4. Perfect color. Stylish outfit. Winner!

  5. it's lovely! That yarn knit up so beautifully, the color is perfect!

  6. ooh, that's darling, and such a lovely colour too.

  7. Beautiful hat!
    I am super excited for Liesl's shop to open as well. Her yarn is a lovely as she is. :)
