    Hello lovelies,

    one of my all-time favorite things to knit is ... hats.They knit up super quickly (at least in a heavier weight yarn), are really, really useful, and make for great gifts. Bonus points for patterns with interesting texture or cables - they are also extremely fun to knit!

    As this month it's all about Gift Knitting here at Making Stories, I thought it would be fun to put together a post about those quick-to-knit and wonderful-to-gift hat patterns - and throw in a little goodie for you: All of these knit up beautifully in our new Hudson + West Co Forge.I know that this yarn is new to most of you, and splurging on something you're not sure what to make with can be a bit tricky! So from today (November 9) through November 13, you get a free hat pattern of your choice with every purchase that includes at least 1 skein of Forge.

    All of the patterns down below can be knit up with just 1 skein - ideal for giving this beautiful, 100% US-made yarn a try. To get your free hat pattern, simply add your pattern of choice from this selection to your cart together with your skeins of Forge and check out.

    Now, shall we take a look at these hats?

    Brooklyn Hat + Forge

    Brooklyn by Meghan Babin was my first-ever Forge project - and I loved every single stitch of it! Now that the temperatures here in Berlin are finally a little colder, it's the hat that I throw on every day. The folded brim is super, super cozy, and the arched cables remind me of gothic churches.

    The original sample is in Ash; I knit mine in Dusk, which is also beautiful. 1 skein will get you 1 hat!

    Cian

    Cian is a design by Emily Greene for Hudson + West's latest Autumn / Winter 2022 collection. It features Emily’s architectural slanting cables, textures, and pleasing symmetry and works so, so well for anyone! The sample is knit in Tobacco, and you need 1 skein for it.

     

    Macara Beret

    Barbara Gottwik's Macara Beret from Issue 5 is one of our evergreen patterns - we keep seeing new FOs pop up! No wonder with that gorgeous geometric pattern that looks like a beautiful star. If you want to get as close to the original sample color as possible I would recommend 'Evergreen' - and one skein of Forge will be plenty!

    Morganite Hat

    Speaking of oldies-but-goodies: Remember Morganite from JEWELS? Designed by imke von Nathusius, it features stunning diamond-shapes courtesy of travelling stitches that grow smaller and smaller towards the crown. Set on a reverse stockinette background, they stand out even more! 'Cabernet', a deep violet colorway, would be absolutely stunning for this - and as with all of these, one skein will make one hat.

    Rhett

    Rhett, another design from Hudson + West's latest collection, stole my heart the minute I saw it. It's the proverbial classic cabled hat - larger cables combined with smaller, yet still substaantial ones, and a 2x2 folded brim. The original sample is knit in Tobacco which is a cozy, warm brown-red. (Yes, 1 skein is enough!)

    Multitudes Hat

    Me dabbling in knitwear design was short, but while I was at it, I created one hat pattern that I am really, really pleased with: Multitudes (originally from Issue 4), where I wanted to play with cables of different textures and sizes, and top it off with a lovely little pompom. 'Mustard' would be perfect for this - and 1 skein of Forge plenty!

    Oisin

    Last, but very certainly not least: Oisin, another stunner from Hudson + West's Autumn / Winter 2022 collection! I love the update on classic antler cables here, and the combination with a cable shape that looks exactly like a braid. The sample is knit in Mallard, which we currently don't stock, but Juniper would make an excellent replacement!

    You can see the full selection of worsted-weight hats here - and then get some Forge here! Remember, to redeem the offer, simply add a hat pattern of your choice to your cart when you purchase one (or more) skeins of Forge, and it'll be automatically reduced to 0€ / USD :) Happy hat knitting!!

    6 Joyful Spring Knitting Patterns - My Current Favorites!
    6 Joyful Spring Knitting Patterns - My Current Favorites!

    April 10, 2024 4 min lesen.

    Hi lovelies! Spring has sprung here in Berlin – as I am typing this (mid March), the buds on the chestnut tree out the window are a few days away from bursting, the forsythias are in full bloom, and our strawberry plants have started their comeback as well (leaves so far, but Aurin checks every day for berries :)).

    So it's no surprise at all that today's blog post is very much inspired by the sun and the warmer days to come! I have put together a sweet roundup of 6 joyful spring knitting patterns, all of which I'd love to have on my needles soon. (If someone can get me an extra day or two per week to knit (oh, and to spin), I'd love that!)

    The three yarns I've paired them with are my favorite spring / summer yarns: De Rerum Natura's Antigone, a delightful sport-weight linen yarn, Wooldreamers' Saona, a 50% Spanish cotton, 50% Spanish wool blend, and Natissea's Pernelle, our newest spring yarn: A 100% European hemp yarn!

    Hi lovelies! As you might know, we are slowly, surely expanding the portfolio of the shop – I am always on the lookout for wonderful sustainable yarns that might fill gaps we still have, and one that was on the list since last summer was an additional spring / summer yarn.

    When I learned about Natissea, a French yarn company dedicated to organic plant yarns, from Audrey Borrego last year, I immediately contacted them to order some samples. As soon as I had Pernelle, their 100% European hemp yarn, on the needles, it was love – grippy, but not ropey, with a lovely drape that only got stronger after a good washing and blocking session.

    The shade cards had me swooning too – a really comprehensive, well-composed range of colors with something for everyone in it, from neutrals to spring-inspired pastels to deep jewel tones.

    So I was so pleased when Natissea accepted us as a stockist – and I am extra excited to introduce Pernelle to you. Our first 100% hemp yarn, perfect for summer tops, T-Shirts, and lightweight sweaters!

    I reached out to Mathilde over at Natissea and she graciously agreed to answer a few questions about Pernelle. I loved reading her answers!

    Hello lovelies!

    I am back today with a slightly unusual post that starts with a big, big apology to Liza Laird. Liza is a wonderful author (you might know her book Yoga of Yarn), knitter, teacher and yogi, and we were supposed to publish her beautiful poem "in and out", inspired by the ocean, in our Issue 11, "Seashore".

    While I was putting the final touches on our layout, I realized that we had a spread too many (we always print in increments of 4 pages, or 2 spreads) and inadvertently cut the spread with Liza's poem instead of the photo spread I meant to delete.
