The Manly Hat & Boku Skirty

The Manly Hat, inspired by so many patterns in Ravelry.  I took design ideas I’d picked up from many and reworked them into this hat.  Long enough to cover the ears (a must as far as my hubby is concerned), snug fit yet not tight on the head & easily modified to fit newborn to adult.

A YYMN custom Manly Hat ready to ship.

Finished knits 003

Knit using Berocco “Campus” color 2484.  Rich chocolate, blues & tans.  You will be seeing more of these in the Katidids Etsy shop soon


Stocked to the Etsy Shop yesterday, an “Aloha Flirty Skirt”  pattern by Dakine Knits using the

A-line skirt version

BoKu Sweet Heart 006

For this skirt I used Plymouth Yarns “Boku” in color 16.  If you’ve not used Boku, its very similar to Noro in price and texture.  Boku has 5% silk making it a tad softer & has different color combinations than Noro, making it a nice alternative.

More Spring knits will be stocked soon!

Stay warm out there
