I know that I haven’t blogged in two months and I’m so sorry! Things have been rather hectic over here and I haven’t had time to sit and chill for a moment.

But I am going to do a catch up for you today. There should be (all going well) two posts from me today. The first one is a quick one about Starla. A new hat pattern!

A lace beanie worked in the round
The brim is hemmed with a purled turning point.
The lace is a stitch pattern called “Shooting Star” that has been altered slightly to fit the hat better.
The entire hat is lace work all the way up to the bind off.
This is a beautiful hat and will keep you interested as you knit.
The pattern is only four rows each repeat but it is interesting to see it appear each time.
It makes a textured beanie and something that would definitely be loved!
(PDF download only) The pattern is originally from the Knit Picks website and can be seen and purchased
by following this link here.
However, the way Knit Picks is set up, if you are not in the USA, you cannot buy
anything from them.
So here is the Ravelry links for everyone else, and people from the USA too.
or see it on Ravelry.
