I am super excited to announce that I have brand new hat and mitt patterns available! Not only that but they happen to be a matching set. And as if that weren't enough I've also timed the release of the pattern to conveniently coincide with a Mitten Kit Shop Update! The shop is currently stocked with 5 different mitten kit colourway options and 3 different mitten pattern options. I'll be doing my best to keep an assortment of mitten kits available in the shop between now and the holidays. They really do make the perfect gift!
The Ricochet Mitts are fully lined (kits include a cashmere liner in a fun pop of colour - always line with a fun pop of colour!) and the pattern includes charts for either a vertical chevron option (shown here in Slate and Gold) or a chevron that's been turned on it's side (shown here in Ravine and Seabreeze). Who doesn't love a two-for-one!? The hat features a cushy and cozy double brim. Paired with the extra layers provided by the stranded knitting of the body of the hat that makes this one of the warmest and definitely coziest hats I own. On the coldest of winter days this is the hat that I'll be reaching for.
In other shop news, I've added a third enamel pin to our quickly expanding collection! The TFA Star pin features 16 saturated triangles of glorious colour and I've pinned one to the plain black t-shirt I'm wearing today and instantly feel a hundred times better. They are colourful, they are shiny, they are everything I never knew I always wanted. :)
