Snakecharmer Socks

designed by Riin Gill

These top down socks are a delight to knit and to wear. Cables and reverse stockinette in a checkerboard pattern mix up the colors of the yarn and provide a stretchy fabric that fits well.
These socks are very stretchy and elastic, allowing each size to fit a range of measurements. Instructions are given for Women’s S, M, and L.

Mimicry

designed by Michelle Trudeau Fleming

Designer Michelle Trudeau Fleming combines one of her favorite cable patterns with a flanking complementary lace design in this scarf. The lace design seems to mimic the cable, or is it the other way around? A simple seed stitch border finishes it off and prevents the stockinette in the lace from curling. She loved the idea of using cables and lace in the same design, so she was happy when she was able to figure out how to combine this beautiful cable with a lace that fits so well with it.

Ishtar Hat

designed by Carol Ullmann

Ishtar is a Babylonian goddess, representing the forces of love and war. She is passionate, powerful, fearless, and feared. Carol’s friend Alison, who is both strong and incredibly nurturing, inspired the making and naming of this hat. She also cannot hold on to any cabled hat she’s knit for herself, so clearly she needed a little help from a friend.

The Ishtar Hat is knit from brim to crown in Happy Fuzzy Yarn American Worsted in Neptune. Instructions are given for two sizes, and with and without a fold up brim.

Swirly Curly Beret

designed by Riin Gill

This is an octagonal beret, knit from the center out, using the magic loop technique. The first few rounds are tricky since there aren’t very many stitches yet, but it quickly gets easier. Once there are enough stitches, you can work on a smaller circular needle or double pointed needles if you wish. The increases form a pleasing set of swirls, ideal for showing off a multi-color yarn. The brim has a rolled edge, to add a curl to your swirl!

The rolled brim is fairly stretchy. If you’re between sizes, go down a size.

Instructions are included for 7 sizes, ranging from Preemie to Adult Large.

Fruit Fling

designed by Riin Gill

Made of one of our Corrie Sock Gradient Sets, this shawl is a long, narrow, asymmetrical triangle made up of garter ridge stripes with a lace chevron motif along the longest edge and repeated along the short edge. It starts with the point of the chevron and slowly adds stitches along one side, getting gradually wider. It’s 8 feet long, long enough to wrap around yourself several times! Have fun flinging it around your neck and shoulders in every way you can imagine.

Burwick Tam

designed by Diane Zangl

Burwick Tam by Diane Zangl for Happy Fuzzy Yarn

Burwick is a small village and harbor in South Ronaldsay, the southernmost of the Orkney Islands, just off the northern tip of mainland Scotland. It’s also the name of this tam. The lower band of “bars” represent piers in the harbor. The motifs that follow represent the heather that grows near there, first at mid-range, and then in a close up view.

Fits most adults. Shown in Margaret and Macaw.

Spring Valley Shawl

Yarn: Dk Merino

Caterpillar Girl

designed by Riin Gill

As soon as we got Merino Mono at Happy Fuzzy Yarn, I knew I had to design something with it! I loved the way it took the dye, and I decided the soft singles would make a good scarf or shawl. I have a fondness for triangles (doesn’t everyone have a favorite polygon?), and I thought ruching would give visual interest as well as extra warmth (I came up with the idea during a really cold Michigan winter!).

As I was knitting it, the ruched sections began to look more and more like caterpillars to me, which of course triggered Robert Smith singing … cata cata cata cata cata cata caterpillar girl in my head. (I’ve been a Cure fan for over 30 years, so these things happen.)

Heal Thy Soles

Hypotenuse

designed by Riin Gill

The hypotenuse is the side opposite the right angle in a right triangle. Each motif in this lightweight, shimmery scarf or rectangular shawl has three right triangles: a stockinette triangle, a reverse stockinette triangle, and a lace triangle (holey triangle, Batman!) … in theory anyway. In practice there are waves and curves instead of straight lines. The Merino Tencel Fingering yarn has a lovely drape, so the triangles seem to be draping as well.

Yarn: Merino Tencel Fingering

Skills: basic knitting skills (casting on, knit and purl stitch, basic increases and decreases, binding off), lace knitting, reading charts
