The hat is made from Hempathy yarn, so it stands up to some abuse and still looks fantastic. He can wash it, throw it in his backpack, whatever he likes and still have a great looking, comfortable hat.

Huz Scarf - Knitting Pattern

I made Mark a matching set this year. Here's his Huz Scarf, and you can find the link to the matching Huz Hat here.

He loves this scarf because he can wear it a few ways, it's warm, and it's very soft.

As you can see, the finished scarf is very long, just under 10 feet long. The ribbed pattern pulls the scarf in, highlighting the raised stripes and making for a very warm fabric.

My First Shawlette - Knitting Project


IMG_7120
Originally uploaded by theartofmegan

Hey StashBustArmy and other knitterly friends! I wanted to share my first completed shawlette, a gift I made myself to wear in New York City for this year's World AIDS Day event I attended at the UN with Hairdressers Against AIDS.


IMG_7128
Originally uploaded by theartofmegan

It's a classic triangle-shaped shawlette with an eyelet lace pattern that I improvised. I should eventually look up what this lace pattern is called, since I'm sure there's a pretty name for it somewhere. It's essentially a k2tog, yo row, a purl row, a sl 1, k1 row, then another purl row. Anyone know what it's called?

I also love how the eyelet increases give a spine to the center of the shawl. I continued the yarn-over eyelets along all the edges, too. Eventually I'd love to make a plain shawl with the eyelet edges, and weave a bright ribbon through the edges and center spine.

The shawlette is just long enough to add a little warmth, or as a cover for a strapless or spaghetti-strap dress.

It also makes a great chunky scarf with extra coverage, and also has the possibility to provide face coverage on a rainy or windy day.

Next time, I'd love to make one of these in a larger scale. I'd love a big, long shawl in this style that I can completely engulf myself in.

By the way, I made this in Blue Sky Alpaca's Organic Bulky Cotton in the colorway Tomato on size 8 needles.

What do you think? I love having this piece as a new accessory for the upcoming chilly months.

Huz Hat - Knitting Pattern

Here's a hat I made for my husband, Mark. It's still a little warm this time of year, but a nice lightweight hat comes in handy on windy days, cold concert evenings, or high altitude hikes.

The simplicity of this hat makes it a very versatile accessory. The hat also rounds out on top in a simple star decrease, which I absolutely love.
