Whew! I designed and knit and designed and knit and have come up with the following pieces:
First up is Kedzie, a mock-slouchy hat that can be worn and not blown off your head during this gusty October in Chicago:
Next up is Altgeld, a sporty beanie that works equally well for men and women. I love the sort-of art-deco feel I got from the texture!
The last hat of the mix is the Dearborn Cloche, with a pure silk lined brim and linen-stitch "ribbon", with a tweed alpaca-silk-merino blend for the body:
For a fun little accessory, conceived by Grace and engineered by moi, the Bomber Collar using Skacel's new Caribou yarn! Everyone who sees and touches this can not believe that it's knit, but they never want to stop touching it, either!
And it wouldn't be a Sarah collection if it didn't involve at least one shawl! This is a bottom-up shawl with a beaded picot cast-on and a simple lace stitch. Oh yes, and it is a silk-cashmere blend, so it's amazing to wear!
None of these patterns are ready for publication, but if you'd like a free printed draft with your yarn purchase, come by booth 320!
