I've been busy lately working on a new design and new class for CraftEDU. The pattern is also available for sale as a Ravelry download for $4.50. buy now
It's a sideways cabled hat that incorporates short rows for the shaping, plus lots of other techniques not normally found in a hat, like grafting in pattern and picking up sts. Yarn weight and needle size allow you to size the pattern up and down. I used Koigu KPPPM and 3.0mm needles for the baby hat in the tea cup and good old Cascade 220 and size 7/4.5mm needles for the magenta and periwinkle hats above.
There's a free Preview of the class at CraftEDU, and we're running a BAZINGA! through noon tomorrow (Mountain time) that will give you a discount off the price. The class includes in-depth photo tutorials with lots of voice over naration, as well as video tutorials, and runs close to an hour and a half in length. There are even tips on designing with a graft in mind! A boatload of great techniques to learn with just one hank of yarn!
Once again, the great thing about a CraftEDU class is that you can skip the parts on techniques you already know, or watch the techniques that are new or troublesome over and over again.
I plan to offer this techniques-packed class locally, too, so stay tuned for more information.
