I just opened a Ravelry pattern store! And I've uploaded my first pattern for sale - the Two-Tone Toque in Álafoss Lopi (what else?).
I made this hat (and a few others just like it) quite some time ago for my Etsy shop - I'm just now finally working on getting some of my patterns written up properly and formatted, and this is the first one I've posted for sale, as a PDF download, for actual money. We'll see how it goes.
I love this pattern because it works up super quickly (very satisfying), and using a larger-than-recommended hook size with this yarn makes it extra soft and light. Lopi can be a bit coarse, so gentle washing and blocking helps to soften it too. The hat is worked top-down using basic stitches, and the scruffy pompom is made without a special pompom maker (although you can use one if you prefer).
To make this pattern you'll need:
- 2 balls of Ístex Álafoss Lopi (100 g/100 m per ball) or a similar bulky-weight yarn, 1 in each colour
- 10 mm hook
- Yarn needle
