Lunacy Hat
Lunacy Hat

Lunacy- Knit Pattern

designed by Jennifer Mienko

Lunacy is based on a crossed slipped stitch pattern and is quite stretchy. The stretchiness makes this fairly forgiving, so sizing and gauge are fairly flexible. The decreases are done such that they are very nearly invisible.

This hat is a perfect lightweight yet warm beanie style hat for the fall and temperate winter days we have in Western Washington. It's just enough to cover little ears, keep the Washington drizzle off little noodles and, of course, look cute.

Chapeau Marnier Hat- Knit Pattern

designed by Marnie MacLean

From Marnie MacLean:

The cloches of the 1920s have always held a fascination for me and I think they adapt really well to knitting, with their tight fit and minimal or non-existent brim.

This cute little hat is really just a glorified beanie with a fun lace brim and a soft silk ribbon bow. Its knit with fingering weight yarn and meant to be worn when theres just a little chill in the air.

Radial Heat Cowl- Knit Pattern

designed by Carol Young

From Carol Young:

This is a one-piece grafted (or seamed) construction that's knitted flat lengthwise. The sideways rib makes it wonderfully stretchy and adds some cushiness.

You can wear this cowl pulled up over your head as pictured, bunched up around your neck, or fold in half lengthwise for a double-thick radial ring of warmth. Pull up the front to protect your lower face from that cold wind!

Belle Cloche- Crochet Pattern

designed by Rhonda "TurquoizBlue" Davis

From Rhonda "TurquoizBlue" Davis:

One hat, multiple looks. This asymmetrical cloche is worked in the round in single crochet. The increased length on one side is created by adding half-double crochet. Two columns of eyelets grace one side through which either the self-tie or purchased ribbon can be threaded, or wear the hat without any embellishment as a simple cloche. Weave the self-tie vertically through the eyelets, draw up the self-tie and make a bow to create "pillbox" or "turban" looks.

Belle Cloche Pattern- $3.97

Reversible Cable Infinity Scarf or Cowl
Reversible Cable Infinity Scarf or Cowl

Reversible Cables Infinity Scarf or Cowl- Knit Pattern

designed by Sarah Punderson

From Sarah Punderson:

Large cables are featured in this long continuous scarf and shorter cowl.

The longer length makes an infinity scarf with many possibilities. The shorter length makes a cowl that can be worn around your neck or pulled up over your ears. The pattern itself is easy, large cables are knit in ribbing making them reversible and separated by a dropped stitch giving the scarf lots of drape. The tricky part of the scarf is the finishing, the two ends with lives stitches can be grafted together or for an easier finish you can do a three needle bind off.

Reversible Cables Infinity Scarf or Cowl Pattern- $5

Blackberry Beret- Crochet Pattern

designed by Linda Permann

From Linda Permann:

After all of the requests for my Raspberry Beret pattern, I thought I'd design another cute lacy, quick-to work beret in worsted weight yarn. This floral beret can be worn in the traditional style or as a slouchy tam. Worked from the top down using basic stitches, the hat begins with floral lace and chain-space shaping that transitions to solid stitches and a simply textured brim. Suggestions are given for easy ways to customize the fit.

      Lots of great patterns. What a great idea to feature the Ravelry patterns. I wonder if there would be a way of eventually developing a module, like they've done with Etsy. I love the deer with antlers and Infinity cowl.
