My first design, Smokestack, is a lacy “faux cable” beanie or slouch hat. Its mirror-image lace “cables” are reminiscent of smoke plumes wafting from a chimneystack on a chilly winter’s day.  With two crown options, the easy-to-memorize lace pattern flows from a ribbed brim and works up quickly – using less than one skein of DK or Worsted yarn – and no cable needle required!  Instructions are both fully written and charted.  Worked seamlessly in the round from the brim up, this is ideal for lace newbies or advanced knitters.

It’s a super-quick knit so it’s perfect for holiday gifting – in a couple of evenings you’ll have a super-cute hat.  I’m warning you though, it’s so cute you won’t want to give it away!

Wanna buy it?  It’s only $5.00 – click the “Buy Now” button below to purchase the pattern from my Ravelry store.  (FYI, you don’t need to be a member of Ravelry to purchase the pattern, but if you want to have more fun with your knitting, you should join – it’s free.)

  1. Just bought this pattern – seems strange when the temperature is 30c. But nevermind, it’s always good to begin planning for fall knitting. Besides, just thinking about winter has a cooling effect. Now back to linen! I’m enjoying your blog and am wondering how the yarn/pattern buying is going.
