Scarves, sweaters, hats, mittens, socks, and more! As the weather gets colder, the season of knitting reaches full swing. Knit Season Scarf captures the joy of knitting for colder weather with a traditional style. Along with images of garments knit for the cold, you’ll also see fair isle style stripes and images of yarn, knitting needles, sheep, reindeer, and more!
Fractals have always fascinated me. They are a beautiful combination of mathematics and art. At its most basic level, a fractal is a pattern that looks similar at every level of magnification. The Dragon Curve Fractal is the fractal featured in the chapter headings for Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton.
I designed this hat to show off the lacy design of the Dragon Curve Fractal. It is a medium weight, double knit hat that features this fractal repeated all around the hat. Contrasting yarns show off the design, especially if one of the yarns is a variegated yarn. The hat is fully reversible, featuring opposite color schemes on each side. Try wearing the hat with the matching Dragon Curve Fractal Scarf.
This year I knit myself a present. Since I often play the elf, giving everyone in my family plenty of hand made gifts, I made myself an elf hat. I didn’t want it to look too much like a santa hat, so I chose a pattern with stripes and used green and white.
The pattern is called Striped Stocking Caps, and includes a child size, small adult size, and large adult size. I made the small adult size.
Check out my Ravelry project for the hat.
I’m looking forward to wearing it on Christmas morning!
