Melted, originally uploaded by spinayarnforewe.
I just released a new pattern on Ravelry. This is a hat using the other half of the skein from the Melting Pot mitts. It can be worn back, slightly slouchy or it can be pulled down over your ears.  It is a quick knit and a great way to make sure all of those great sock yarn skeins are used up.

Melting Pot

I am so excited that I can finally talk about my newest pattern. I have been working with Dani of Sunshine Yarns for a while now to come up with a pattern that uses one skein of yarn and that would be perfect for the hoilday season. It is called Melting Pot.

I came up with the name since a melting pot is about combining different elements and “melting them together” into a harmonious whole. These mitts use lace, ribbing and stockinette together to make a fun new look. There is even a little detail at the top of the thumb.
They are going to be offered in a kit with pattern and yarn at Sunshine Yarns starting tomorrow.  The yarn that is used in them is a very luscious merino/cashmere blend that is heaven to work with.
