Flowering Vine Hood

Knit Picks has just released my latest knit patterns, Flowering Vine Hood (Adult Size) and Flowering Vine Hood (Child – 2 sizes).  My beautiful friend and her gorgeous daughter graciously modeled for me.


Finished measurements for the child sizes: Top of the head to the neckband 11.5″/29.2cm (13″/33cm),   Neckband length 18″/45.7cm (20″/50.8cm),  One side of the face to the other 18.5″/47cm,  (20″/50.8cm).  The adult size finished measurements: Top of the head to neckband 13″(33cm), One side of the face to the other 21″(53.3cm).

The intermediate skills required are cabling, lace work, I-cord, kitchener stitch & simple embroidery.  If you’re unfamiliar with any of those skills, take heart!  This pattern would be a gentle introduction.  Both easy-to-follow charts and written instructions are included.

When I designed the hood, I thought it would be a stylish, lightweight cover for those chilly spring days.  Who knew we would bypass that season altogether??  Oh well, fall is just around the corner!

ERRATA:  If you purchased before November 8th, 2012 please take note of the following corrections:
