I'm Alex Tinsey and I design stuff! I like simple textures and interesting shapes. I like soft wools and kettle-dyes. I like ice cream. Addis. Hats. Spinning. Ducklings. And I like you too, sugar cheeks. I can?t say I care for bio-writing, though. Boring stuff: I graduated with a degree in psychology (still in mint condition!) from Reed College, after dinking around at the Pacific Northwest College of Art and Kenyon College for a while. I've been knitting since about 2004, designing since about 2006. I was making up my very own garter stitch squares and randomly-decreased hats before that, but I won't count it. I've had patterns published in Knitty, Knit Simple, the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program, and Interweave Knits, though I generally go the self-publishing route.View all patterns by designer (24) »
Looking for a hat that...
a) will really and truly keep your ears
b) is vaguely named after your favorite
walrusy diabeetus spokesperson, for no reason other than the "brim" in his name?
You've come to the right place. This hat features an oversized double-brim to really keep the wind out, complete with seamless hem and cheeky contrast picots. (For a more unisex look, work a purl round in place of the eyelet/picot round.) Also features an unusual decrease scheme and "Looks great with thick glasses" capabilities (just ask all my testers, who apparently also wear thick glasses! Haha.)
