Next week we will be debuting three new designs by three Canadian designers at our Stitches West booth (#1041 & 1041). Each design will be a pre-release available for purchase exclusively at our booth (while supplies last). The patterns won't be available elsewhere until April 1st 2013.
Caramel Slouch by Alexa Ludeman of Tin Can Knits
"Just like pumpkin pie means a sweet treat and a gathering of family, this slouchy confection combines two of my favorite things: cables and lace! Once the brim is complete it is smooth sailing, just some simple stockinette to keep you cozy."
Sizing: Baby (Toddler, Child, Adult S/M, Adult L)
Yarn: 1 skein of Cashmerino Worsted - shown in Spiced Pumpkin
Needles: US #7 / 4.5 mm (any type) and US #9 / 5.5 mm 16 inch circular and double pointed needles (or size required to meet gauge)
Gauge: 18 sts / 4” in stockinette stitch using larger needles
At the show we'll also have copies of Tin Can Knit's first published book - 9 Months of Knitting available for purchase.
Wellington by Jane Richmond
"This textural hat features a simple repeating pattern reminiscent of raindrops. Using a unique combination of stitches to mimic the look of a cabled honey comb stitch without the need of a cable needle, this stitch pattern only looks difficult. Inspired by the rainy weather indicative of west coast winters, this hat satisfies both form and function."

Yarn: 1 skein of Merino Twist Worsted - shown in Worn Denim
Needles: US #6 / 4 mm 16 inch circular and double pointed needles (or size required to meet gauge)
