Mimizan is a beanie worked in two colours of worsted/aran weight yarn. The design was inspired by the large cones of the maritime pine trees in the forests around Mimizan in the Aquitaine region of France. It uses a fun combination of slipped travelling stitches to create the zig zag effect and you are only ever using one colour at a time. The pattern provides full 'stand alone' written instructions for the stitch pattern and has been thoroughly tested for clarity. It's an interesting quick knit, ideal for gifts and in smaller sizes, ideal for using up left overs from other projects. The breakdown of the yardage of yarn needed in each colour for each size is shown. As such you can see if partial balls have sufficient yardage for your size.

Tess Young
Tess Young lives in the north west of England with her partner, 2 rescue dogs and 2 rescue cats. These companions enrich her life immeasurably, bringing great joy and plenty of exasperation; she’ll leave you to decide which brings which. For their part they often see Tess disappearing into her stash of yarn, vintage patterns, textiles and haberdashery, often to the sound of ‘ah’ ‘ooh’ and ‘argh’ as pretty and precious items are either rediscovered or declared ‘lost’. Tess’ designs are influenced by the south coast she grew up on and the north west coast on which she now lives. Her shared love of mountains leads to summer road trips and much hiking in Europe. These landscapes influence how she thinks about colour, form and structure, and function and wearability. However, Tess also loves the built environment and how we can build striking design into our everyday lives through mindful consideration of the spaces we inhabit. This too, she aims to capture in her designs, inspired by often fleeting experiences and lasting memories.
