Pink Yarn

WELCOME!

Let's make something beautiful together

Top of the World Knits patterns are for knitters with plenty of experience but who don't have time to work on complex knitting patterns. I love incorporating interesting structural and uncomplicated stitch patterns into my designs, resulting in impressive one-of-a-kind projects that knitters will be proud to complete.


I'm a member of the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program, where you'll find several of my patterns, along with self-published patterns on Ravelry and through my website. I have a lovely two-color mosaic hat pattern in Volume 1 of Making Magazine's newly launched BRIGHT Collective.


2023 is an exciting year for Top of the World Knits. I have a classic knit pullover sweater that will be featured in the May issue of Knit Picks Stripes Collection and several collaborations with independent yarn dyers on hats, shawls, and sweater patterns. I look forward to sharing more information with you about these upcoming projects.

WAVELET HAT

Wavelet is a classic knit hat with a slip stitch technique and a two-color Latvian Braid. Using the mosaic colorwork technique, the hat is knit in the round from the brim up. This simple technique means the knitter only needs to use one color every two rounds. The hat comes in 3 sizes (Child, Adult Small, and Adult Large). Written and chart instructions will be provided to create the mosaic.

You can find the Wavelet Hat pattern in the September issue of the BRIGHT Collective, a monthly e-zine subscription created by MAKING Co, the creators of Making Magazine. BRIGHT Collective is the next evolution of MAKING. It's a monthly digital magazine that will arrive in your inbox on the 25th of each month. The emphasis in each issue will be on fiber arts, recipes, meditation, and nature. The Wavelet Hat will be the featured knitwear design in the September Issue.

PASS THE HONEY

Pass the Honey is my latest sweater collaboration with Knit Picks. The cardigan was made using their new Brava Tweed colorway called Goldenrod. Pass the Honey is a mid-length, modified drop shoulder cardigan with no waist shaping and faux side seams. The cardigan comes in 9 sizes with 8" (20 cm) of positive ease. The mock honeycomb stitch appears complicated but most definitely is not. The stitch pattern is easy to remember with lots of resting rows and rounds, so you can easily pick it up and put it down without forgetting where you left off.


Best of all, the pattern is FREE! Click on the button below for the FREE pattern.
