New pattern: The Fallingwater Beanie by Lizzy Knits
My new knitting pattern, the Fallingwater Beanie is now available for download. It calls for 1 skein of We Are Knitters The Petite Wool or MeriWool.
The ‘Fallingwater Beanie’ has a cozy folded brim and lots of vertical and horizontal slipped stitch texture. This design reminds me of minimalist art deco elements in architecture,. I am a huge fan of this type of building design, and I just love the mix of staggered horizonal lines with long vertical columns. I think they
just go so well together to create an eye-catching look.
