A quick drive-by post to point you in the direction of a lovely pattern that was recently published by my dear friend, Kelly.

Stormount 2

Test knitting is always fun!  It’s great to work alongside the designer as their pattern is tweaked and fine-tuned before making it ready for publishing.  When Kelly asked me to test knit her hat pattern, Stormont, I jumped at the opportunity.

Stormont was a great pattern to knit. This pattern allowed me to indulge in the cable fix that I always crave once the mercury dips.  The cable pattern is on the front as well as the back and a bit of slouch on the back makes for a chic topper for those bad hair days 😉

This pattern is a winner with the wide range of sizes offered – 6 months to large adult.  Check out the many lovely versions of this pattern on Ravelry.

Stormont (Ravelry notes)
Pattern: Stormont by Kelly Ashfield
Yarn: Tosh Vintage in “Honorine”
Needles: Size US 6, 7 / 4, 5 mm

I can’t wait to see what Kelly has in store for our needles next.

I have one more test knit on the needles for another knitting buddy and this time it’s a pair of socks 🙂  Warm head, warm toes :: I’m all set for Old Man Winter!
