Quick pussy hat pattern - knitting for Women's March

Here is a quick free knitting pattern for the pink #pussyhat to be worn by many women marching at the time of the Washington inauguration. Pink yarn in my stash is ordinarily DK or sport weight for baby sweaters, so I used two balls of yarn to quickly knit this soft and squishy hat on a 10.5 (6.5mm) needle for January 2017 #womensmarch.

New urban knits for fall 2016

New knitting patterns for fall 2016 abound in Kyle Kunnecke's new Urban Knit Collection, which includes timeless classic designs for cardigans, pullovers, and accessories for both men and women.

This 160-page hard paper knitting book was inspired by Kyle's observation that key motifs of construction, used in 20th century architecture can be applied just like the main elements used in building a knitting pattern. "Big city style meets classic design" for modern knitters.

A new fish hat pattern for Phish fans

The famous fish hat knitting pattern has been rewritten by J.G. Miller and just posted as a free pattern download, July 2016. The original, an immediate success with Phish fans and avid fishermen alike, has some new techniques and a livelier finished look than the first dead fish hat pattern.

Miller has turned the tail around and used short rows for a vertical finish with fins that stand out, just like a swimming fish. Fans of the Burlington, Vermont-based music group, Phish, went crazy over the first "alive or dead fish hat" and I am sure they will be very pleased to know the fish hat pattern is this time "alive and well."
