First, I want to thank all of you who shopped during my birthday sale this year.  You made it a fantastic day and I really appreciate your support!  I look forward to seeing your works in progress and finished objects!  

Now for a new pattern:

Azurite is a new hat pattern featuring slip-stitch mock cables, a ribbed brim, and a fetching crown.

I used a lovely Merino/bamboo blend, Crabapple Yarns Posh.  It's a light fingering and creates a very lightweight fabric that's unusual in hand knits.

The light fabric makes a particularly versatile hat, especially because the brim is long enough to be folded up if you need extra warmth around your ears.  

The elegant and delicate mock cables are fun to work and the pattern is intuitive and easy to memorize.  The pattern features both charted and written instructions, so you'll enjoy knitting it whichever method you prefer.

The pattern is also written for four different sizes, so you'll be sure to get a perfect fit.  

I'm headed off to TNNA San Diego this week, so if you plan to attend, please come by the Stitch Sprouts booth to see this and lots of other samples.
