New Pattern: Sporange

Happy November! In the spirit of having not started my gift knitting yet, I have two new patterns out this week. Both were spawned by an old college friend asking for a bulky hat and some fingerless gloves, and I am utterly charmed by both.

Today we have Sporange, the aforementioned chunky hat. She wanted something fun to give her kids something to talk about,  but she is anti-pompom. With those two criterion, I set course for a spongy cabled hat.

I'm so pleased with how this came out, and I'm really pleased with how the pictures for this came out! This was one of my favorite photoshoots ever, and I'm utterly charmed. I also realized that while I've been taking pattern pictures in front of the barn for the past year and a half, I hadn't done a photoshoot with pigtails until this weekend!

Sporange is available on Ravelry and in my Pattern Store here. Enjoy, and Happy Knitting!


  1. You're so prolific with both your knitting and your pattern writing! It's amazing!

  2. You look cute in it. I like the running cables. They have energy.

  3. love the new hat design! great texture, and I bet it's toasty warm!

  4. Ooo it's lovely! Looks so cozy too. :)

    I FINALLY blocked the toque I knit from your pattern (the name is eluding me right now), mostly because Winter has officially arrived with 4 inches of snow and -15C temps, and I really need a hat. Once I dig myself out of my teaching duties, I'll see about knitting a few more!

    Maybe even this one. :D

  5. Once again a great hat pattern, I love it! And agree that these pictures are super cute :D

  6. pretty hat, pretty braids and a very pretty you :)
