Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Umbel is a flat-knit square shawl, worked in a beautiful textured Estonian lace stitch. It is designed to stay on the shoulders, drape beautifully and keep you warm when there’s a chill in the air.

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Cornflower is a spring/autumn hat knit in an interesting stitch pattern of eyelets and elongated stitches that’s actually very simple to work (watch the videos to see for yourself). It will keep your hair out of your eyes on blustery days, and thanks to the braided tie, it’ll stay on your head too!
This is a great beginner project because it’s made up of 3 rectangles. Depending on which closure you choose, you can get away with only knowing how to knit & purl! You can also make all the errors of a novice knitter - wonky cast ons & cast offs, wobbly stitches, etc. - and you can hide them (& your ends) away in the seams. :)
