Despite telling my mom years ago that I would never become a knitter, I took up a pair of needles in 2009 and havent put them down since! Knitting is an outlet for my creative energy and my desire to always be making things with my hands. My goal as a designer is to create unique knitting patterns; inspired by the beautiful, wild and rugged landscape of the Pacific Northwest--a place I loves to explore and am privileged to call home. I strives to write patterns that are easy to follow and simply enjoyable both to knit and to wear.
Keeping busy by day as a wife, mother of three and homemaker, I love to spend my evenings curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee, knitting, planning and sketching my never-ending design ideas. :)
If you have an questions about any of my patterns, would like to become a test knitter or to set up a trunk show, please feel free to contact me! Id love to help!
The Coffee Bean pattern is as rich in texture and detail as the smell of well-brewed coffee! Designed to show off the beautiful and soft tweed wool, this earflap hat is a mixture of simple twisting cables and a wide rib. Starting with the earflaps, the Coffee Bean is knit from the bottom up, finishing with a beautiful tapestry of cables on the crown and an optional pom pom for flair. The best part about this hat are the I-cord loops at the base of the earflaps: this allows the flaps to be hooked onto buttons sewn onto the sides and worn up if desired.
This pattern is for the adventurous beginner knitter due to the cables, however, the cable pattern is easy to pick up and is surrounded by a simple stockinette rib. Because of the comfortable, stretchy nature of the wide rib and cable combination, this cozy hat will last through a child's many growing seasons.
Pattern includes helpful photos and instructions including notes on all the techniques described.
