Modulation is a cozy hat knit in worsted weight yarn, with a stitch pattern that is interesting to knit and fun to wear, while remaining simple enough to please even the pickiest wearer. (My 10- year old brother, in fact, has claimed the sample for himself!)

The hat is available in sizes newborn (baby, toddler, child/ adult S, Adult M/L), fitting head sizes approx. 14” (15-16”, 17-18”, 19-21”, 22-24”). The hat is designed to be snug, but is very stretchy. Please note that the smallest 3 sizes have only 1 vertical repeat of the pattern.

Solis is a pair of elegant yet simple fingerless mitts made using fingering weight yarn. Designed to coordinate with the Aestas beret, these mitts are perfect for fall or spring or even chilly summer nights. The pattern includes both a long and short cuff version.

(Solis means “of the sun” in Latin.)

Aestas is a light and airy beret, perfect for warm summer days or for a light hat for fall or spring. The lace pattern is sophisticated yet easy enough for a beginner. Aestas is designed to coordinate with the Solis gloves.

Fresh Bonnet

Fresh Bonnet is designed to fit newborn babies for the first few months of their lives, with a larger size for babies aged 3-6 months. It is a light and airy bonnet knit in DK weight yarn, light enough to wear out in the sun but just warm enough for those chilly air-conditioned stores and restaurants. This is a very quick knit and can easily be completed in an evening, making it a perfect last-minute shower gift. The bonnet is worked in one piece by picking up stitches, and thus requires no seaming.

When I showed this hat to my little brother, he told me it looked like a spider’s web. Coppe is and ancient English word for spider, and is the root for the word cobweb. Coppe is a quick and easy beret out of worsted weight yarn. The easy stitches used in the pattern make this an idea pattern for someone learning to work in the round, or an ideal last-minute knit for a more experienced knitter.

Named after the tradition of singing letters with “x”s, Bisous is a lightweight hat knit in DK weight. Guidelines are included for adjusting the pattern sizing to fit smaller or larger heads and the pattern includes a photo tutorial explaining the technique used to create the crosses.

The pattern is available on Ravelry here for 2.50$. You do not need to be a Ravelry member to purchase the pattern.

This is a simple and quick knit using worsted weight wool (sample in Cascade 220). It is knit top up and the finished product is very stretchy, fitting a wide variety of head sizes. The pattern is written using typical abbreviations and is laid out very clearly in round-by-round instructions. The main body is knit on 16” circular needles, switching to double pointed needles once you are into the decreases. The gauge is measured in pattern, and should be 4 sts/inch.
