Pay What Works: Inspired by the models of other designers that I trust and respect, I’m now offering a “Pay What Works” model. I like this model because it accurately reflects the pride that I take in all of my designs and the effort that I put into them, while staying true to my heart: that knitting should be accessible to everyone, no matter what their current life situation.

Kimber is the first hat from my Jem and the Holograms inspired collection! Bright colors and fuzzy textures is what this collection is all about!

Kimber is now available for individual purchase on Ravelry as of Dec 1, 2018! The entire collection is also available, currently at a large discount, with each new pattern releasing biweekly until all 5 members of The Holograms are revealed! The price of the collection will incrementally increase with each reveal, so get it now!

Kimber is knit with two strands of yarn held double the entire project, a fingering weight yarn and lace weight mohair/silk blend, to achieve a soft halo effect. A fun, but simple lace and cable pattern adds some flair and interest to this slouchy hat. This hat does have an extra long brim that you can roll up to give extra warmth or to style like a beanie instead of a slouchy hat!
