I’m really excited about my newest pattern, the KaPOM! Hat in the latest issue of Holla Knits Accessories. It’s a hat so bold it hits you in the face!

This whole hat happened after I met Allyson in person at TNNA this summer. We talked about how all my previous submissions to Holla Knits were a little simpler than what she looks for. I do love stockinette and clean lines, and I have to admit my look is generally more classic than edgy. If you’ve met me in person you’ll know that I’m not a flashy dresser either. The items that I design reflect my personal style. If I wouldn’t wear it you won’t find me knitting it!

I do, however, like loud accessories. Would I wear a sweater like this? No, but a hat? Definitely!

Here’s my original sketch, and my swatch using Baah! Sonoma in Grey Onyx, Pink Tourmaline and Gold Rush. These bright and happy colors were the inspiration for the hat. kapom swatch

The Ka-POM! Hat includes a slipped stitch pattern. It looks like fair isle, but you actually just work one color at a time, and there are no floats! I’ve created short video to show you the stitch.
