Hello my friends, and Happy Sunday! (I know, I usually post on Fridays, but this week got away from me somehow and here I am a couple days late. Oopsie!)
I have been super busy over here at Straight Hooked Headquarters, and I have a few more patterns to release before the year is over. On top of pattern writing, I am working on a couple of collaboration projects as well as some new designs for January. And I just took on a really special commission project because I am a crazy person and sleep is overrated.
The Polar Rush Beanie is now here, and is a super fun and quick hat to make. I used Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky (5 weight) yarn in 2 colors and a 6mm hook to make this beautiful hat that works up in about an hour. The Polar Rush Beanie utilizes my signature Dolphin Stitch to create the gorgeous texture.
If you have never tried my Dolphin Stitch, see this tutorial video:
What I love about this pattern is that by using the bigger yarn and hook, the project goes quickly and gives you a sense of accomplishment that you can complete an entire hat from start to finish before your Christmas movie is over. So if you need a last- minute gift idea for your sister-in-law, teenage niece, or even that really nice lady at your favorite coffee shop, this is going to be PERFECT!
The Polar Rush Beanie goes perfectly with the Polar Rush Capelet as well! The Polar Rush Capelet pattern includes ladies sizes from S-XXL, making it also perfect for gift giving! Check out my Polar Rush Capelet Pattern Release post for more about this fun pattern!
