I received a copy of the ebook, Head to Toe: Kids' Knit Accessories by Katya Frankel. I can't remember the last time I got a knitting book and thought, "I want to knit every single pattern in this book." This collection, as the name suggests, features simple, stylish, gender-neutral accessories for kids of all ages (and small to medium-sized adults). The book in broken into sections--Head Things, Neck Things, Hand Things, and Foot Things. Since these are all child-sized accessories they are, for the most part, single skein projects and excellent stashbusters.
I dove into the Head Things section first. I got out my leftover Cascade Ecological Wool from my Rorschach Jacket (I think I still need to do a post on that) in Aporto, a gorgeous blue-green. First I made Duerger in the smallest size.
Here's the view from the top.
This is a simple beanie with twisted ribs running up the sides and raglan-like decreases at the crown for a slightly unusual shape. Very cute.
Then I continued to Simonside, in the largest size, a basic ribbed hat with a little swoosh-y cable on one side.
I still have a lot of yarn left. What to knit next?
