I am delighted by this pattern as it represents my design style so well. I love a clean look with an added element of interest. The Stacks Hat features a classic shaped beanie/toque with an added textural surprise. Instead of using the traditional ribbed stitch, I incorporated a twisted knit stitch. By doing this, the ribbing takes on a raised three-dimensional look.

 

The Stacks Hat is a quick project that is sure to keep you warm during the months of cold weather. It is a one skein project and the choices of yarn to knit with are endless.

Knitted Football Coasters

I made these coasters a couple of years ago and they were a hit. Since Superbowl weekend it coming up I thought I would update the pattern. These coasters are a great stash buster that will have you football ready in no time. Enjoy!
