Crann Nollag

I like beads, I like Christmas trees, and I like hats.

Here is my newest design, featured in the brand spanking new online knitting magazine I like Knitting, Crann Nollag, beaded beanie. This hat is knit with Life in the Long Grass Silk Merino, a lovely soft shimmery sock yarn, hand dyed in County Cork. The yarn is “an airy pearlescent with faint tints of gray, green and mauve”. 2014-12-31 19.48.46The hat is knit in the round, with a beaded tree motif repeated in different colours all around the circumference of the hat. The yarn, with its icy tones of mid-winter is a perfect backdrop for the colourful hues of green and blue trees.

I enjoyed knitting this hat; so much I made two, one for me and one the bookworm. The beanie is close fitting, but knit the larger size if you want a slouchy look! Both hats were knit from one skein of yarn and there even was a wee bit left over!

  1. Congrats on getting published 🙂 Lovely pattern!

    That looks like a cool magazine. I get some print subs, but I think online options are getting more popular.
