We’ve released a new pattern this week that you may want to take a closer look at. This is the Ebb Tide Hats pattern designed by Kate Salomon. The pattern includes instructions for two version of the hat: a “low tide” slouch and a “high tide” beanie.
This hat was inspired by long walks on the Cape Cod National Seashore. We love the texture reminiscent of tide washed sand and windswept dunes.
Knit up with Mewesic, with its rustic good looks and tweedy rich color, this hat knits up into a medium weight cap that drapes beautifully and wears well. Style, yarn, and two versions of the pattern combine into the perfect accessory for him or her!
The pattern calls for a bit less than a single skein of DK weight yarn for the smaller beanie version and would look great with any of our DK yarns such as our New Mexico Organic (as seen above), our Cotton Comfort or our Alpaca Elegance.
The 50/50 alpaca blend will provide beautiful drape for the “low tide” slouch hat which requires just over a single skein. You’ll have plenty of yarn left over for some fingerless mitts!
This pattern may make for a fun collection of hand made gifts for everyone on your list this year. Give us a call at 800-321-9665 and we can help you find the perfect colors for everyone you’d like to knit a “little something” for.
