About Basic Chunky HatBasic Chunky Hat_Side

A blizzard is headed our way, so I decided to whip up a really basic yet cozy hat to help keep me warm when it comes time to dig our way out of the snow. This Basic Chunky Hat is a really quick knit and is worked flat making it a great project for beginners. The pom-pom, which is completely optional, just adds a little something to this otherwise plane Jane hat.

Satin Basket Weave Ear Warmer

I love to accessorize and for me the outerwear is what really pulls an outfit together. It’s like the cover of a book. Your coat, hat, gloves, scarf are a snapshot of the outfit that lies underneath. So, for a recent girl’s night out, I wanted something that said casual, but fun and interesting. So I designed this Satin Basket Weave Ear Warmer. It’s a really simple quick knit but the pattern adds that interest and detail that makes it seem way more complex than it really is.

Beginner’s Chunky Seed Stitch Ear Warmer

About Beginner’s Chunky Seed Stitch Ear Warmer

My commute to work is a triathlon of sorts. First a short walk, which is just long enough to freeze if you’re not bundled up head to toe. The second event is a long ride on an overheated train which is only tolerable if you remove all knit layers. The last leg of my commute ends with another brisk but bitter walk to my final destination requiring me to reapply all of the layers that I had previously shed. By the time I reach my desk, what would have otherwise been a good hair day is in serious jeopardy from repeatedly pulling my hat on and off my head. In an effort to preserve my hairdo this Chunky Seed Stitch Ear Warmer was born. It keeps my ears warm and my hair in place by serving double duty as a headband. It’s a quick knit making it perfect for beginners, while the seed stitch pattern elevates it giving it that added detail that will have other commuters envious of its warmth and versatility.
