Basic Skills Necessary:

  • basic wrap and turn short-rows
  • knit & purl
  • Pick up stitches

Pattern Description:

Love texture, but not the bulk it can add? If you're anything like me, you'd rather not add any more girth to your body than necessary! Knit in an affordable light fingering cotton yarn, Hexa is a cute puffy-cap sleeved summer top, easy to dress up or down. There's no way around it; this is a small-gauge, time consuming project. But if you're as infatuated by 3-dimensional texture and pretty yarn as I am, Hexa will be a joy to knit and wear.

About the designer

I've been driven to create for as long as I can remember. Although I'm concentrating on knitting right now, I also love to sew, weave, and crochet.
