My newest design, it is still only available as a pre-order but will be released properly very soon (waiting for the printer and shipping and things). It is a part of Pompom quarterly issue 18 Autumn 2016, the natural dye issue. It is a hat with a leaf stitch pattern in colour work and a fold over twisted rib brim for extra warmth. The leaf motif is inspired by the ash leafs shape with a nice organic round but pointy shape.
I’m so pleased with this design, it turned out just as I imagined even if I was very nervous sending away the hat and pattern to pompom. Thankfully their photographer Rachel Hayton manage to capture it perfectly and the hat fit the model, something I was very anxious about beforehand as I didn’t have the models measurements when I was knitting the sample.
It feels amazing and a bit strange to be published along side these other amazing designers and I’m so incredibly happy to have my first non self published pattern and to have it in my favourite magazine feels amazing. Although I love the freedom and non restricted timetable of self-publishing it is something special to have this and definitely want to aim for an occasional collaboration.
