Bristlecone is Here!

Just in time for holiday gift knitting, we are happy to introduce a new free pattern, Bristlecone! With a range of six sizes from newborn to large adult, this cozy pattern will make the perfect hat for all your loved ones.

The Bristlecone features a hemmed, ribbed brim which keeps ears warm on the chilliest of days.

A slip stitch cable pattern adds simple texture and makes for an engaging knit. Our Bristlecone hat samples are knit in Birch Hollow Fiber’s Phillis DK, one of the newest yarns we've added to our shop, and a yarn we've quickly fallen in love with.

Top Bristlecone with a fluffy alpaca pom pom for added style. These pom poms from Toft UK are ethically sourced, providing funds to indigenous farmers in Peru, who otherwise would have a loss of income caused by the death of one of their herd.

We think the alpaca poms look especially cute on li'l baby heads like darling Virginia-Rose. She's already growing out of the newborn-sized Bristlecone, so it's time for Aunt Amber to knit up the next size for her!

We hope this pattern brings some joy and warmth to you and yours this holiday season!

    I love the speckled yarn… any chance you still have any?
