knitting pattern: The trigonometric hat



The trigonometric hat is a cabled hat with wavy curves and a simple knit and purl pattern inbetween. It’s knitted tightly so the winterwinds can’t get through and your head stays warm and cozy. You can wear the hat with doubled brim or slouchier. The pompom is optional and there also is a tutorial included how to make one.

This hat matches the trigonometric loop scarf and mittens. There will be a three-piece set of the trigonometric patterns available soon.

the knitting needle bag


This is my current knitting project: a cable pattern hat in Drops Lima (an alpaca – wool blend)


I kept my knitting needles in a shabby red plastic bag for some years. When I looked at it yesterday – for the hundredst time regretting the old thing is still there – I decided to make a real fabric bag. It is made from the same fabric as my embroidery hoop bag. I can close it with drawstrings I kept from a christmas paper bag.


I think I’ll make some for my knitting projects, too!

Knitting backwards

Knitting backwards or also called frogging is an activity frequently done over here in the last few days. The good thing is every version of my new scarf is getting a little bit better than the previous and the yarn I’m using is tear out resistant! It’s the same yarn I use for my knitting tutorials.Probably you will not have noticed but it’s not only the same yarn I use for most knitting tuts it’s exactly the same yarn.


So it’s out, I have 2 small balls of yarn I use for EVERY SINGLE tutorial. And you know what? It still doesn’t show. I think that’s a really hard quality test to be frogged 20+ times. The yarn is named Semilla grosso by BC Garn and I used it for the Caroline and Trigonometric scarf. It’s not a bargain but it’s organic 100% wool and I highly recommend it (no I don’t get paid for this :)).

Off to the knitting needles again, bobbles and cables don’t knit themselves!linden02
