A Tease to Please #4

I'm excited to say that my new hat pattern is almost ready to be released.  I spent a good part of last weekend working on the final touches ~ the pattern is now written and the hat has been photographed, but I want to read through the instructions a few more times before I share it.  I'm always amazed at how long it takes to design a pattern from sketch to final release ~ hats off (no pun intended) to all you incredible designers.  I just don't know how you do it, week after week!

One such designer is also one of my all-time favorites:  Jane Richmond.  There are some designers whose aesthetic you can see from a mile away.  If you've been following Jane for the past few years, I think you'll agree that she has a classic look that's pretty irresistable.  Whenever I get the chance, I jump to test knit for her and one of her recent designs was truly a joy to knit ~ the Beacon Hill Cardigan

Jane is one of those all-around designers:  hats, cowls, mitts, cardigans, pullovers, ... you get the picture. Jane has generously offered to donate a $15 gift certificate towards her patterns as a prize for our charity hat knitalong, and I couldn't be more thrilled. 



So, there you have it, friends ~ no more teasing.  We've got three amazing designers and one incredible indie dyer (Allyson, Melanie, Jane, and Sandra) encouraging some charity hat knitting.  I can't wait to get started with all of you! 


  1. That was splendid of Jane! Can't wait to see your design.

  2. Well done on getting so much support for your KAL! You have done very well with that hat - it looks very nice!
