Hi Yarn Alongers! How are your projects coming along this week? I love seeing the great outpouring of work, talent and creativity that is shared here–it’s so inspiring!
I could use a little inspiration just now. I’m nearly finished with this new design for an aran weight chunky lace work hat with seed stitch details and fun (optional) pompoms. But as I sat down to write up the pattern, I got stuck on the title! I just can’t seem to work it out. Most of the time, a name will just come to me–either from the design itself or maybe a little nod to the yarn base or colorway, but I’m just not feeling anything on this one.
I would love it if you’d share a suggestion with me! Leave your thoughts in the comments, and if I use the name you’ve suggested in the final pattern, I’ll gladly send you a complimentary copy of the finished pattern so you can knit your own 🙂 The lace pattern doesn’t have any specific name, but it reminds me of pine trees or arrows or chevrons…so maybe that’s a jumping off point? Thank you in advance for your ideas! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Also, if you’d like to help test knit this design, I’ll be putting out a call for testers on Thursday. You’ll need less than 100g of heavy worsted/aran weight yarn for any of the three sizes (this is Malabrigo Worsted) and Sz 8 needles. You can join my Call For Testers newsletter here to get full details and info about signing up later this week!
(Also, I’ve been playing around with this logo design to use on business cards, apply as a watermark to pics, and put into patterns. I’d love to hear what you think?)
