Pattern testing, color & yarn play


This last week I've been pattern testing my upcoming Nordic Hat pattern. A hat that is supposed to accompany the Nordic Wrist Warmers of course... I've been tweaking, fixing, counting and writing it all down. Changing, adding, failing and succeeded! It is one thing to make a hat for yourself, another thing to make it into a pattern for someone else to read and follow...

In the process I've included some color and yarn play. Trying out new color combinations apart from the original version, and a new yarn (so excited about this yarn!!!) which will soon be available in my Yarn Shop.

This new yarn is named Ulrika and is produced by Svarta Fåret just like the wonderful Tilda yarn. It is a 100% Superwash wool and a divine to work with. Supersoft and washable, a DK weight and perfect for winter accessories and blanket making.

And the latest Nordic Hat trial is a smashing bottle green hat with pink contrasting colors. It will look lovely on someone in winter. I might just take it for myself if none of the girls grabs it first. :)

The pattern is about to be launched soon. Stay tune - things are happening over here. Just need to proof read and take those last few pictures and I'm ready to roll this.

  1. It looks smashing, the colours are great. The other day as I was frogging a pattern I was following and painstakingly trying to go back stitch by stitch to were I went so wrong. I thought I could never ever be a designer of knitwear as no patience what so ever so I have the greatest respect for you to do this and enjoy it xxxx
