I’m a lifelong knitter, from a family of knitters, gardeners, seamstresses, and sailors (yes, even the men!) - who also happen to be doctors, scientists, priests, and businesspeople (yes, even the women!). I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Craftsy or in a variety of print and online magazines and books. I happily work with local yarn stores, crafters, and indie dyers: please contact me to start a conversation about how we can support each other!
I’m a certified knitting teacher, accomplished technical editor for knitting patterns, and in my daily life am an academic science librarian.
The Jaume hat and neckwarmer are a quick and fun knit with a manly feel. The rib stitch does not pull in as much as normal ribbing, but is very easy to complete and has an added benefit of being completely reversible. The neckwarmer/collar can be worn folded over like a collar, or unfolded to cover the ears. The suggested yarn used is a super-warm and fluffy New Zealand possum/Merino wool fingering weight yarn that is held doubled throughout, but this pattern could also be done in a DK or worsted wool.
