Second pattern released this month. I feel a bit like author Georges Simenon who famously put a fresh piece of paper in his typewriter to start another novel the moment he pulled out the last piece of paper from his finished novel.
I would, of course, like to feel more like the author J.K. Rowling who sells about 5,000 books per minute when a new one is released.
Maybe I should write books.
Pattern Details: Auricle Beanie
There was a cold knitter uneasy
Because earflaps made her quite queasy
“Shaping flaps is so fiddly,
“Mid-row cast-ons so beastly,
“But this beanie’s just easy peasy!”
Keep your auricles stylishly warm with this garter rib beanie worked all in one piece. Strategic increases and decreases create a whorled rib pattern that dips down over the ears creating a subtle earflap. In other words, an earflap hat that doesn’t require three separate pieces and mid-row cast-ons.
