Named for a lighthouse on Block Island, Southeast Light is a beacon for doing stranded knitting, in small doses. I’ve taken two stitch patterns from Alter Knits and combined them into my favorite pillbox-style hat.

Knit as shown, or switch the dominant color for a major visual difference.

My Crown Finale joins the crown visibly, in quadrants. Written instructions and a diagram will get you through, then finish with an embellished Crown Knot.

In my color Action charts I indicate how many stitches to knit when there are 3 or more consecutive stitches of one color. I find it easier than counting boxes, but unnecessary for fewer than 3 stitches. Written instructions are given for any knitter who doesn’t like charts.
