Header Headband

Header Headband

Sometimes, people in your community need tangible care and comfort but they live too far away to bring them groceries or do their laundry. Header is designed to be that little something that’s easy to mail to your long distance community. As a fun cabled knit with a pop of color, you can easily raid your stash and whip it up over the weekend in time for the mail on Monday morning. Once your package is safely on it’s way, you’ll have time to create one for yourself, too.

COLOR SHOT MITTS

Dark winter days filled with bitter cold, not even a sliver of blue sky can be found. Ennui sets in and tints everything in an film of gray. Picking up the knitting needles can be a challenge and the only solution to shaking off the angst is bright colors worked into an quick gratification project. 

Color Shot Mitts meets all those requirements and also offers a variety of modifications, creating an almost "Choose Your Own Adventure" environment, certain to chase away apathy and gloom.

Underline

Underline

Crisp laid lines, close set buildings, and twisting city traffic, this cardigan parallels them all. Reflected here is the industrial monotone that is always underlined in color. Bold lines of a newly striped street, pops of vibrancy in a flowered window box, these and more are echoed in the slash of color provided by the Underline ribbing.

Worsted weight and top down construction ensures this design will be a gratifying knit. Since the set in sleeves are worked in short rows without seaming, you’re done when you bind off! Pockets are optional but always encouraged. This cardigan is a beautiful fixture and carries you flawlessly through your days as life bustles around you.

First Edition

First Edition

The gentle high low hem of First Edition dips perfectly in the back to wear with leggings, if pants feel like oppression on any given day. Cozy sleeves and a texture pattern echoing classic book end papers, the asymmetric neckline tops off the piece with a quirky touch of perfection.

Usher in sweater weather with this perfect worsted weight cardigan. Let your imagination run wild with a large color palette, but don’t let five colors intimidate you, you can create your perfect cardigan in as few as two color choices. Short rows and colorblocking create the iconic shawl collar, while the sleeve length is perfect to carry you through the passage of fall into truly cold weather, and will even see you through the coldest season of them all: summer in your office.

Even though the color work looks complicated, don’t let it deter you, you only have one active color in each row making it perfect for the hesitant knitter who is dying to incorporate color work into their repertoire.
