Instructions are available both charted and written (line by line)

I used to shy away from bottom up shawls as the amount of stitches to cast on seemed interminable, however with this shawl, I placed picotsinto the cast on edge and suddenly the counting of stitches became a breeze! Plus it gives the shawl that lovely edge that you often only find on top down designs! Both these things make me extremely happy 🙂

The size of this shawl can also easily be adjusted, by increasing the cast on stitches in increments of 25.[/x_text][x_line][/x_column][x_column bg_color=”” type=”2/3″ style=”padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_text]Riversong

Dark winter night, last snowflakes fall
onto pine trees strong and tall.
The stars above sparkle like snow
which lays below, bends branches low.

In frozen snows I lay asleep
on pine trees high, on mountains steep.
In Spring I melt and trickle down,
down to the soil that’s deep and brown

The first colder nights of early fall bring with it cozy ideas of fair-isle knits and Scandinavian Ski sweaters to keep you toasty when the real cold gets here. But I am usually in ‘winter denial ‘until much later and then often around the darker times of the year, I am longing for the lazy, warm days of late summer with the buzzing of bees in the air. What to do? I was in no way ready to knit snowflakes! Sitting by the local creek one afternoon, soaking up some late summer sun, pondering this dilemma, I watched the dragonflies dart to and fro in the sparkling light, and the perfect idea came to me: A colorful double knit hat, with dragonflies to represent summer days, worked in jewel tones of dragonflies, sunshine and sparkling water-drops, colors which would make me happy and a hat that would keep me warm and remind me all winter long that longer days are right around the corner!
The name Odonata (Odonata is an order of insects, encompassing dragonflies and damselflies.) to me has a beautiful ring to it and makes me think ‘Ode to summer’ which is what this hat truly is!

[/x_text][x_text]

Die ersten kalten Herbstnächte bringen Gedanken an skandinavische Skipullover und bunte ‘Fair-Isle’ Schneeflocken. Aber meist bin ich noch gar nicht in Winterstimmung und dann, in den kalten, dunklen Nächten, sehne ich mich nach den trägen, warmen Tagen des Spätsommers mit dem Summen der Bienen in der milden Luft.
Was nun? Schneeflockenmuster gehen mir im Herbst noch ganz gegen den Strich. Aber eine farbenfrohe Doppelstrick-Mütze mit Libellen als Motiv, dafür könnte ich mich schon mehr begeistern.
In bunten Farbtönen als Erinnerung an Sommertage, glänzende Wassertropfen und Spaziergänge am Bachufer. Eine Mütze, die warm hält und Farben, die mich den ganzen Winter lang glücklich machen und daran erinnern, dass die warme Zeit gerade nur noch ein paar Monate entfernt ist!
Odonata (Odonata ist eine Ordnung im Insektenreich, zu der Libellen und Wasserjungfern gehören) hat für mich einen schönen Klang, und ich denke immer ‘Ode an den Sommer’ und das passt ja eigentlich genau für diese Mütze!

Inspired by the Pre-Raphealite paintings of Jason and Medea and Medea’s story, I created a shawl and Tri’Coterie created a special colorway to fit the theme:
Red transitioning to mad black.

This fingering weight shawl is worked top down from the garter tab cast on to the lace edge. The beginning lace section shows the blossoming love, like rosy petals full of hope and faith in the future, reaching out and unfurling towards the sun. The lace border shows the unraveling, the dissolving of dreams. A simple stockinette section connects the two.
The duality of Love & Madness is so perfectly captured both in the Pre-Raphaelite’s paintings and Tri’Coterie’s ‘Medea’ colorway.[/x_text][/x_column][x_column bg_color=”” type=”2/3″ style=”padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_text]This pattern is available charted only at this time

In dark green with red buttons it says ‘tis the season’ like nothing else. It’s also something Holly Golightly might have worn on cold days, peeking in the windows at Tiffany’s as the shape is somewhat of a cross between a hat and a cloche with a little bit of bonnet mixed in.

Super quick and cozy in the alpaca/wool blend, this hat works up in no time in any worsted or light worsted weight yarns. You can make one, maybe even two in an evening!

The bottom edge ribbing is worked flat in two pieces, then joined in the round and the rest of the hat is worked in one piece.
You got more hair or more brains? No problem, it’s easy to make the crown a bit longer (Instructions included) to fit you better.[/x_text][/x_column][x_column bg_color=”” type=”2/3″ style=”padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_text]Yarn: Cascade Lana D’Oro (50% Wool, 50% Alpaca, 219 yards/200 meters, 3.5 oz/100gr); 1 skein Rainforest 1076, or worsted/light worsted weight yarn, about 120 yds/110 meters
