"Perri: Traveler. Someone who lives near a pear tree." I am fascinated with name meanings, especially when they lead to inspiration in knits. "Perri's Pattern" evokes decorative windows in houses of worship worldwide as well as heavy hanging fruits from pears to figs. The textural lace of the body of the beanie travels into ribs inspired by the ceiling of Baroque cathedrals. Tourist or homebody, this cozy hat will comfort you year round.
A version of this pattern was published as "Soy Beanie" in 101 Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders. This version is graded for multiple sizes, includes charted instructions, adds length, and has other modifications.

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.
