Like it or not, winter is drawing near in the northern parts… luckily for us knitters, that’s no big deal. Today’s Quickie will certainly keep you warm in style- introducing the Calico Parka Hood by Faye Kennington!
One of the joys of winter is pulling a deep (faux) fur trimmed hood up and over your head. This hood can be made in 4 sizes to fit everyone.
Pattern includes a photo tutorial for making and working with thrums.
The hood is knit flat from shoulder to shoulder. Then the fur trim is rolled back and sewn in place and a seam is stitched up the back. Attaching icord and pompoms is the final step.
What are Malabrigo Quickies?
Quickies are small, fast projects which require only one or two skeins of yarn. Approximately every two weeks we’re teaming up with a talented independent designer to present an exciting new accessory (or other “small object”) pattern, showcasing one of our many yarns and colorways.
