Dye your own yarn with coffee, then knit a coffee-themed hat! One, 100g ball of white yarn is divided into three smaller balls, two of which are dyed with coffee. One ball gets a quick dye in weaker coffee to produce a pale brown, while the other is dyed more slowly in stronger coffee to produce a darker brown shade. The colorwork pattern is inspired by the swirling shapes made by cream as it is added to a hot cup of fragrant coffee. The white crown of the hat represents the cream; the light and dark brown swirls are the coffee as it mixes with the cream; and the white ribbing at the bottom of the hat represents the thick-walled white ceramic mug holding the coffee. This hat is knit from the bottom up and worked in the round.

I learned to knit in 2001 while recovering from an illness and quickly began modifying patterns and then designing my own garments. My designs have since been seen in Knitty, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, and on Boing-Boing. I started designing cross-stitch patterns when I couldn't find patterns that were the right mix of traditional and sarcastic.
