Happy to announce my second pattern in as many months in an Interweave publication.
The Winter 2014 issue of Knitscene is out.
And my Paros Hat is in it.
The Details: Paros Hat by Robin Allen | A Texas Girl Knits
A marled yarn paired with a bright solid makes for an eye-catching effect in this simple unisex pattern. Choose your favorite neon contrast color to make it your own, or pair a more muted solid to make this a gift for anyone to wear.

Skills Required: Knitting, purling, decreasing, working in the round, researching techniques you’re unfamiliar with.
NOTE: Pattern calls for Aran weight yarn, but this could easily be knit in a worsted weight yarn with little effect on size.
To Ponder: There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way. |Christopher Morley|
