Happy New Year , everyone! Kicking off the year with free patterns! My patterns designed for Fable Handknit yarn is available on Spun magazine. The Twiggy Bobble Hat was inspired by the youth quake look. I noticed Chanel was doing it for this winter, and I just loved it. The second design is the Aspen Neck Cowl. This design reminds me of the beginning of an Audrey Hepburn movie, Chaade (1963, click for trailer). Hepburn's character is sitting in an outdoor cafe overlooking the French Alps. I picture it being worn over the head with pitch black sunglasses. I love this design because it goes with so many outfits and it keeps me incredibly warm while avoiding "hat hair" (alpaca does not cause static easily). Enjoy! I would love your feedback too.
