Fans of Downton Abbey’s amazing fashions, rejoice!

Just in time for holiday gift-knitting, A Head For Trouble: What To Knit While Catching Crooks, Chasing Clues, and Solving Murders (20 Hats & Adornments Inspired by Lady Detectives of the Roaring Twenties) was released in October, 2014. It is available in both electronic and paperback format both here and on my website:

Knit something special for your inner flapper!

Los Angeles in the Roaring Twenties is an exciting launching pad for author Alice Duncan’s sheltered and proper Boston Brahmin Mercedes Alcutt. Having escaped the clutches of her overbearing mother, Mercy is determined to enjoy her freedom in decadent Hollywood. Seeking independence and a job that will provide her with material for the novels she plans to write, she promptly bobs her hair and becomes the secretary to a jaded ex-cop turned private investigator. This stylish and colorful cloche broadcasts the enthusiasm with which the modern knitter, like the flappers of the 1920s, seizes life (and needles) with both hands.

BRIM Instructions: Should read as follows:
With circ needle, MC and with RS facing…

In addition, one line of the pattern got cut out during the final editing process. At the bottom of page 78, the left hand column should read as follows:

Rep last 2 rows once more - 150 (160, 170) sts.
Purl one more row.
Beg short-rows as foll, slipping markers as you come to them.
