Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Inspired by the giant oak tree that has forever predominated my parents’ back yard and the fall colors that my mom always wears, this hat is perfect for fall and is a great exercise in patience and stranded color work. The square crown is a fun and fancy touch that sets it apart from standard stocking caps.

Knitting: Mittens
These mittens are knit partially flat and partially in the round. The pattern is a basic mitten pattern with intarsia colorwork incorporated.

Knitting: Cuffs
These wristlets are a great first project in helical knitting, a method of knitting in the round that hides the beginning of the round. They are quick and easy to make and require only 5 or so yards of each color of yarn. You can make them literally any size or color and with whatever size needles you want, depending on the size desired.

Knitting: Mittens
These mittens were inspired by Norwegian knitting and cold Wisconsin winters. You will obviously need a lot more white than the other colors. You only need a few yards of green and red and slightly more blue. I made these from the leftovers from the Mary Maxim Nordic Flair Stockings kit.
