My latest pattern is a throwback to a classic Bakers Boy cap with a trendy twist. This Bakers Boy Cap features a short soft brim with a bobble accent to mimic the strap. The sides and back of the brim are ribbed vertically while horizontal bands feature a series of eyelets for a unique textured lace look.

Knitting: Cowl
Just like the constantly shifting waves of a wind-tossed sea the Loom Knit Rolling Waves Cowl is full of texture and movement. I won’t say that you can smell the salty air when you wear it, but you can almost feel the ocean breeze.

The Rolling Waves Cowl captures the essence of the sea in it’s movement and texture. The oversized eyelets on sea of stockinette change direction as they drape your neck.

Newsboy Messy Bun Hat Pattern Notes
Knitting: Billed Hat
This hat is an oversized newsboy style. It fits more hair & sits over the ears. The optional slouchy version, included, is meant to be worn with the slouch pushed back, patted down & sides pulled over ears. If not worn that way, it has a very “stovetop pipe” look; it also holds a ton of hair so great bonus if you need that!

Samples shown in photo as striped but can be made solid or any number of stripe c...

The spring vine was created as a spring birthday gift for my mother-in-law. Spring is her favorite time of the year.
