Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Named for the sea situated between Shetland and the Norwegian coast, this hat celebrates the shared heritage between the knitting traditions of Norway and Shetland.

Moon Sprites is a bite-sized companion to the Moon Pulls pullover. Worked from the bottom up with a garter stitch brim, the pattern includes instructions for three different versions of this simple yet spirited hat.

I thought I’d knit up an earwarmer for cooler weather – I wear my hair up often but it’s hard to wear a hat when my hair is pulled up. So here’s my solution! Even though this pattern uses three colors, you’ll never use...
