Name My Pattern Contest!


This design deserves a catchy name!

You are getting a sneak peak at my upcoming cowl pattern! It is warm and squishy in Malabrigo Merino Worsted and it has, obviously, a very intriguing structure. But I am completely stuck on naming it! So I decided to have a contest from now until February 2 (2018) and let Ravelry members decide. All the details about the contest, prizes, and where to vote are in this post on Ravelry.

Because it is a forum on Ravelry, only Ravelry members have access to the post, so if you are not already a member (it’s free!) you really should be! So head on over to the contest and share your creative ideas!



A Headband for Triple Crowners!

Yes, my models for this design are good looking and fit, but can you believe they have both hiked over 7,900 miles? My most recent headband design – Triple Crowner Headband is named after their accomplishment. The Triple Crown of hiking is awarded to those who have hiked all three of America’s major long distance trails – The Appalachian Trail, The Pacific Crest Trail, and The Continental Divide Trail. My son and his girlfriend are two members of this elite group and my other son (also a big hiker) photographed them for this design.

Whether or not you like to hike at all, this headband is a quick knit and a great gift for both the men and women in your life. It involves a nifty three branch cable (for the three trails!) that requires two cable needles on the two rows where they intersect. If you enjoy working cables you will have fun with this design!
