The Time Has Come!

The Call Box Hat is live! Get your copy of the pattern from Knotions Magazine, find your worsted weight yarn, and get knitting! Winter is coming.

The Call Box Hat is available in only one size (21”/ 53cm unstretched), but it is very stretchy and should fit most adult and teen heads. It is easy to knit – using only knit, purl, and directional decreases. The contrasting brim is a great way to use some worsted weight leftovers, but you will need a little more than a full skein of yarn for the main color.

Wait For It…

In 2011 one of my best friends introduced me to Doctor Who. We were on a choir tour, so we had a lot of time to kill on the bus from one location to the next. She had downloaded a bunch of episodes to her computer, and we binge watched our way from state to state. Doctor Who quickly became one of my favourite things. I didn’t know how to knit then, but after I learned I wanted a TARDIS hat. The only problem was that I didn’t really like any of the patterns I saw online. What’s a knitter to do? Make her own pattern, that’s what!

I knit the original Call Box Hat around Christmas of 2014. It fit pretty well, but it was too loose of a gauge for me and the wind would blow through it. I still loved it, despite it’s shortcomings, and I was very sad this past winter to find that I had somehow lost it. I decided to replace it with a better version of itself. I swatched and reworked my charts to make a better, more windproof hat. You might remember a few months ago when I finished this beauty.

Well, the time has finally come. It is being published in Knotions Magazine this Saturday, September 30! You can see the preview here. I’m so excited!
