I live near the Weskeag River, a short tidal stream on the coast of Maine that the Abenaki Indians called "Wessaweskeag" meaning, "Salt Creek". Not only is the name inordinately fun to say, this 'stream' is one of the most powerful things I've ever seen in my life. Four times a day it funnels in and out of its bed under a narrow bridge that creates a roaring surge of water that could rival Niagara Falls for velocity. I designed this cap to be a gentle, wooly tribute to that awesome spectacle. The single cable rides up the side *almost* like a swirling channel of water. Knit in the round on large needles, this hat is a quick knit but not without a couple of small details that make both the process and the finished product interesting. Sizing: One size will fit most. The design is generously ribbed to fit a wide range of heads! Finished measurements are approximately 17 inches around, 9 inches tall. Materials: 1 skein Quince & Co.

I am a twenty-something year old wife and stay at home mom who is only slightly obsessed with knitting and designing... only slightly. I love to dance poorly, eat, play with my 10 month old son and watch movies with his dad. I've been knitting for over 15 years and sell my designs and products in my Etsy shop, Ugly Mugwump Designs. I live within walking distance of the sea on the Northern coast of Maine and at one time in my life fancied myself quite the poet.
