Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A simple hat with a dainty detail that makes all the difference! The smocking is done after the knitting is finished, and requires just a few quick stitches.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Do a lil’ twist! This pert yarn is perfect for twisted rib (which is easier than you think, I promise!) The action of the stitches is echoed in the snakey motif that winds around your head, before wrapping up in a snappy pi-style decrease.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Sweeter than sugar and oh-so-unhealthy, candy just wouldn’t be candy without a big dose of the ‘tose. This hat is awfully sweet with its little bonnet-like slit, but strong perpendicular lines and a delightfully artificial color keep it from getting too saccharine (which is even sweeter, yikes!)
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Note: This pattern requires the knitter to use a chart.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Citric is the second release in the Sweet Tooth mystery e-book.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A sweet little confection for your noggin’! Dragée (named for the Jordan Almonds that these colors remind me of) is a classically shaped beanie ornamented with oversized cables and (if you so desire) a contrasting pom.
Knitting: Cowl
Simple, 2-colors-at-a-time colorwork echoes the traditional quilting motif called “Flying Geese” and makes for a cute and perky graphic pattern. This cowl is worked as a sideways tube, and then the two ends are grafted shut, to create a double-layered cowl.

Simple, 2-colors-at-a-time colorwork echoes the traditional quilting motif called “Flying Geese” and makes for a cute and perky graphic pattern.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Named for the friend who inspired it, Sonny is a top-down exploration of simple colorwork. The classic diamond pattern is great for any gender, and the horizontally- ribbed brim adds an extra bit of insulation around the ears.
Knitting: Pixie Hat, Stocking
With a name like Dalliance and such a delicate peachy-pink color, this yarn cried out for something with a bit of whimsy! Enter the Pisky- a pixie-ish hat with a touch of dainty detail. Fun to knit and even more fun to wear!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Please note: This pattern requires the knitter to work from a chart.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Add a little dazzle to your dome! Some sparkle to your skull! Some glimmer to your…uh…noggin? Anyway… the twinkley bits in Berroco Flicker brighten up even the dreariest winter day, while the lofty alpaca keeps you cozy. A dark, smooth contrast brim gives it a fun layered look with far less effort (and bulk!)
Knitting: Beret, Tam
I made the first version of this hat years ago on a whim, and did not write a pattern. It quickly became my go-to hat: in a collection that numbers over 100, this is the hat I wear 9 times out of 10. I love it so much, I reknit it again in the exact same yarn (and color!)- and took notes this time. Finally I can share with you my very favorite hat!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Three gashes of varying sizes give you a peek into the innards of this otherwise straightforward striped hat (or, rather, a peek into a faux-lining you create in minutes with just a strip of knitting.) Subtle colored stripes and highly textured yarn add just a bit of depth, but experiment with more contrast-y combinations for a more bold, geomet...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Not willing to go full-neon but you still want a bit of a pop? Easy- do just the tip ;-)
Knitting: Cowl
Now anyone can have an hourglass figure! As long as they want it on their neck, anyway…
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This pattern was originally released as a part of Twisted’s Shawlette Club in November 2013.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
“Causey” is an archaic word for a cobblestone road, which is precisely what this bumpy lil’ number reminds me of. Easy to knit and quick as can be with big needles and squooshylishous Purl Soho yarn, this hat is great for a quick gift or cold ears that need to be warmed up ASAP.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Note: This pattern requires the knitter to work from a chart.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A companion hat for the Chevzam Cowl, this hat is fun to knit, great for colorwork newbies (since you only alternate two stitches at a
Knitting: Earflap Hat
As in, “There’sno-way I’m taking off this hat, ‘cause it is snow-ay outside and it is super cozy!”
Knitting: Cowl
Chevzam features dead simple colorwork that looks far more complex than it is thanks to frequent color changes and a graphic, chevron motif. The floats on the back provide a double thick layer of cozy Malabrigo Merino for the ultimate in cheery winter luxury, and the color combinations are endless!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Bonnet
Somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle between a bonnet, an earflap hat, and a slouch, you’ll find Kotiya. Kotiya is a touch exotic, but still cute and wearable, and with plenty of opportunity for poms or tassels! Experiment with contrasting colors for a “pop” or keep it monotone to tone down the kookiness.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
While wearing these mitts may not be quite as satisfying as plunging your arms elbow-deep into an alpaca’s coat, they are still very cozy, and so far have proven fairly unlikely to bite or spit.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Delightful in its simplicity and mishmash of soft textures, this stylish but classic hat is sure to become a standby, particularly when worked in oh-so- agreeable neutrals (though a bright pompom on the gray base would be cheery and very fashionable at the moment!) This alpaca bamboo yarn with its fascinating chainette texture is both soft and r...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Part of the Love from London collection.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A little mountain on your head! Spiraling lines spice up this easy-to- knit hat, with a rolled hem detail for a touch of extra charm. A great just- past-beginner project or something slightly-more-interesting-than-mindless for the more advanced knitter. Gorgeous Madelinetosh Vintage takes it to the next level, and the understated design plays ni...

SUBSTITUTION NOTE: The yarn in this pattern is held double and used as if it is a heavier-weight yarn.
Knitting: Pullover
Part of the Love from London collection.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A classic unisex hat with just enough twisting-around to keep it interesting without being overwhelming! As written, it fits a 22-23” head and (at this row gauge) has a short, skull-cap fit, reminiscent of a vintage sailor’s beanie. If you prefer a longer hat or are getting a shorter row gauge than called for, you can easily add some length to t...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A textural adventure designed to eat up your DK-or-light-worsted-weight-ish scraps! Toy with the colors, try different fibers- don’t fret too much about matching the exact gauge, as long as you’re in the neighborhood, you’re good to go! It is written for four yarns, but could easily be done with more or fewer. As written, it should fit approxima...

Knitting: Cowl
This little cowl was born of my love of triangle scarflettes, and their all-too-frequent (and frustrating) tendency to fall off when I’m running around. It is knit in two very different yarns (superwash merino wool and a feather-light steel-wool) in the same color, paired with rapidly changing stitch patterns to create a sort of textural adventu...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Looking for a hat that…
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Please note: The yarn is held double throughout. Though the yarn is listed as DK, I would say it’s a little lighter than that - two strands together make a healthy worsted weight. Please keep that in mind when making yarn substitutions (you can also just use a worsted weight yarn, of course!) You will need to be able to work from a chart t...

Knitting: Cowl
Nothing like a pure silk bandana- cowl in the richest ruby red to please the luxury-loving cowpoke in all of us (what? “Cowpoke” and “luxury” totally go together, I’m almost sure of it.) Worked side-to- side in good old fashioned garter stitch to show off this most delicious of yarns, the ends of the “bandana” are grafted together with kitchener...

RUFFLE SHUFFLE!!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Two great yarns x two decreases = four cozy, slightly-slouchy hats that are destined to become staples in your headwear repertoire! And with far less purling than you think ;-) Choose from DK or Worsted weight, and from Swirl or Cross decreases.

Knitting: Cowl
This cowl is so easy, so satisfying, so soft and warm, and so darn cute. Did I mention fast? Fast, too. And reversible. And there are pom poms! What’s not to love?
Knitting: Beret, Tam, Beanie, Toque, Cloche Hat
A craftily-constructed hat with a buttoned-up keyhole that can be worn to the side or the back of the head. Short row shaping keeps the knitting interesting, and luscious cashmere yarn makes it an absolute treat to knit and wear!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Earflap Hat, Hats - Other
When I was given the opportunity to design with some of this crazy Knit Collage yarn, I jumped at the chance! The result is a hat that’s half homespun-coziness and half 60’s B-movie hot-lady-alien. In short: awesome. Definitely a head-turner and

I can’t help it! This hat makes me think of wrinkly Klingon heads! Only, a bit more stylish and less kinda- scary.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Third of the welted hat series, which also contains A Hat for Eudora and Klingy Girl (so far, heh.)
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Just a little hat for when you want to blend into the crowd, while simultaneously standing out. Pair with glasses and a coordinating shirt for maximum disguiseocity.

Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Cloche Hat
Eudora. Welty. Get it? Aw I slay me. This is the first in a series of hats exploring welts, alternative decrease patterns, and contrasting accents. This hat features a seamless, integrated contrast hem, stair-step welts, short row shaping, and staggered decreases. Video tutorials are available to help with some of the techniques:

Errata: There is a small error in the row numbering- “28” appears twice. This does not affect the actual instructions. I’ll have a fixed version out soon!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Cloche Hat
Darla’s just a darlin’ little thing. You can wear the split brim folded up for a jaunty little cap, or folded down, with the slit to the side or back, for a slouchier look. A very simple knit, suitable for novices, but with quirky enough to hold the interest of more advanced knitters as well (it’s great for tv-knitting.)
Knitting: Cowl, Beanie, Toque
It’s a cowl! It’s a hat! It’s a howlcat! And despite sounding like something that will keep you up at night, it’s actually a cozy and versatile accessory that converts from a cowl into a hat in just a few seconds. It’s also reversible- making it at least four accessories in one (though I bet you can come up with more ways to wear it!)

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
A snazzy striped shawl with lots of options for customization! Pick your size - a classic triangle, two triangles stuck together (slit square), or three triangles stuck together (mushy starfish), pick your sock yarns (just about anything’ll do!), pick your edging, and put the stripes wherever you want ‘em! (I’ll tell you where I did them, of cou...

Cozy little snowbunny hat with little bunny-tail-esque pompoms! The angora is ultraluxurious, but you could work it in a smooth aran weight (Malabrigo Twist, perhaps) for a different look.

A curious and simple little hat with great potential for embellishment! I chose crochet chains and feathers for my ties, but you can do anything you like. This hat is knit inside-out to avoid doing tons of purling but still get that tidy, reverse stockinette one-row stripe. Between stripes, carry the yarns on the outside of the work instead of i...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A super cozy, ear-hugging, wind-blocking, simple-yet-interesting beanie well suited for most any age or gender. Knits up quickly and looks more complicated than it actually is- a great last minute gift, especially for hard-to-knit-for menfolk. Block stretched to increase the slouch, or just steam gently to maintain the tight rib (hat shown falls...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
A cozy little shawlette that’s a breeze to knit! Starting at the bottom means that each row gets shorter, and the project seems to move faster the closer you get to finishing.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Sometimes basic is best! The garter stitch in this shawlette shows off a special skein of yarn (whether it be hand-painted or just a fabulous color) and the knitting is simple enough to be relaxing with enough shaping to keep interest. Large needles make it a quick knit that is great for gifts, and the ornamentation options are endless- tassels?...
Knitting: Beret, Tam
This slouchy, sassy little number is knit in the round with a garter stitch brim and several garter eyelet stripes for interest. It’s a springier version of a hat I wore almost everyday this winter (and for which I got a lot of pattern requests.) If you skip the increases (and the first two sets of decreases) you can get a much subtler slouch- m...
Knitting: Cowl, Headband, Earwarmers
It’s so hard to resist buying that one little skein of Aquarella - it’s so beautiful and watercolor-y and amazing. But with just 65 yards, finding a project that will use one skein is challenging. This is my answer to that conundrum: wear it as a super fat & cozy headband with ties in front or back, or even under the chin, or use it as a lit...

I don’t really remember how this wrap got it’s name. Something to do with my friend (and photographer) Vivian remarking what a poetic garment it was. And hey, “verse” sounds like “versatile, and it’s definitely that. Wear it as a scarf, neckwarmer, capelet/stole, shrug…heck, I’m sure you could think of a few others. In the right colors and worn ...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Earflap Hat
While this hat is probably not actually well-suited to hunting wabbits (or ducks), it does remind me a bit of traditional hunting caps when you tie the earflaps up- only, much cuter. With buttons. And pom-poms. (Ok, fine, it bears very little resemblance.) Flaps down, your ears will be super cozy under double-thick layers that also serve as pock...

Why Bad Oyster? ‘Cause it’s got no purls! (I slay me.)
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A bouncy, springy, sproingy cozy hat!
Knitting: Beret, Tam
A relatively easy, kinda-lacy, rather-swirly beret. Great for pretty much any worsted weight yarn (though I find it particularily luscious in malabrigo :-) )
Knitting: Beret, Tam, Beanie, Toque
Fluffy, cabley, easy, slouchy (but only if you want it to be.) Hoorah!
Knitting: Beret, Tam
Zig-zagging herringbone and a poofy top make this hat kinda kooky and fun to knit :-) And big needles means it flies by!
Knitting: Stocking
This classic stocking cap is so floppy it’s downright floopy! The striping shown is just a suggestion- try any color combo and stripe scheme you can think of! Makes a great elf hat, or add a pompom and you’ve got Santa! A tassel at the end wouldn’t be unwelcome either (for that ole-timey nightcap vibe.)

A fun and easy hat that uses two colorways of Kureyon to create something that looks much more complicated than it is! A good intro to stranded knitting.
Knitting: Beret, Tam
The classic flattering slouchy shape, stripped down to its barest bones and brought to life with beautiful handpainted yarn. The large needles and bulky wool mean that this hat flies off the needles- great for gifts or just for a bit of immediate gratification. Want to jazz it up? Try a pompom, some embroidery, or even a colorwork motif.
Knitting: Scarf
This scarf got its name because the broken rib stitch pattern is so fantastic for showing off a special skein of yarn, be it hand-dyed, handspun, or just a favorite. Contrasting tassels really set off the colors when using a variegated yarn, but you could use matching yarn as well (just buy extra!)
