Noticing the recent flux of brightly colored accessories and clothing, Allison made this on-trend neon reversible striped hat. These bright colorblocks are a great way to use up yarn from leftover projects, or you could buy the yarn and plan to make multiple hats. Consider switching the order of the stripes for a coordinated, but not overly matching, group of hats.
Allison used Encore Worsted and Uptown Worsted but any worsted weight yarn would work. The pattern for this hat is available for free with purchase of the yarn to make it. If you’re shopping with us online, please mention that you would like pattern H981 in the Special Instructions section at checkout.
This year’s brightest trend, neon, has hit the shelves of ImagiKnit. If you’re looking to brighten up your accessories, we recommend checking out Uptown Worsted & Boston. Certain colors of Encore Worsted may strike your fancy as well (476, 477, 478, 479), in addition to the ever popular Tosh Sport in Edison Bulb.
KnitScene Accessories 2013 gives us so much neon inspiration.
Boston would be great for the Bow Slouch
Tosh Sport in Edison Bulb, paired with a neutral, would be beautiful in Resistance.
Julia, a lifelong lover of fairy tales, was instantly drawn to The Woodland Hoodlet by Tiny Owl Knits. A short and sweet hoodlet that works up surprisingly quickly, this cable and bobble laden project is so satisfying. Julia is now fit for forest adventures!
The pattern originally calls for Big Wool, but Julia used 5 skeins of Ushya in Cherry Red (color 1708) and ended up with a project that is just as lovely.
The Unofficial Harry Potter Knits, a special edition magazine from the creative team behind Jane Austen Knits, is sure to charm. We could not be more excited. Featuring stunning capes, intricate sweaters and impressive accessories, knitters of all ambitions are sure to be captivated by these magical knits.
Those with chilly hands and a flair for glamorous may enjoy the Albanian Forest Mitts pattern using Rialto DK and Party Angel.
The Gray Lady’s Cloak looks great in Giselle, and the hood adds some extra whimsy to this elegant cape.
