City Lights Beanie City Lights Beanie

My latest design, the City Lights Beanie is now live on Ravelry. This fitted cap features arrow colorwork patterns that are worked with stranded knitting. Not only is the stranded knitting fun (it’s a favorite of mine), but also helps provide a bit more warmth. With bright colors, fun graphic design, and warmth, this is a fun project for any dreary winter day (I know I’m not looking forward to the many we have ahead of us here in Toronto…). The pattern includes instructions and charts to working the design in two colors or, if you like things extra fun, three total colors.

And the best thing about this pattern — it’s free! So if you’ve been looking for a chance to try out colorwork and stranded knitting, this is the perfect chance.

I always have fun time designing and knitting my samples for a pattern, but this time around it was that the test knitting has been the best thing about this design. A little later this week I will share a couple of the finished tests for this design because I think they came out even better than I could have imagined for this design – I had some lovely creative testers this time around.

    • After seeing some of the creativity of the test knits, there are even more options then I originally had in mind. It’s fun to see how others interpret and approach the design.
