Here are a couple of close up shots of my just released pattern for the Storm Mountain Hat
The texture here is created by working more rounds on the exterior of the hat than the interior.
I chose to use reverse stocking stitch on the outer layer to encourage the fabric to bulge. The two layers are secured together intermittently with a round of rib in the interior colour, giving the contrasting stripe.
Note the blue purl bumps showing on the inside (near the needle) after the rib round. These will subsequently vanish.
I have filmed a Tutorial series to accompany this pattern. This Tutorial is about 38 mins long and consists of eight topics, aimed at enriching your knitting experience. This is my third pattern tutorial and I plan to make these a regular feature of my new knitting patterns. The tutorials work just as the video-download DVDs, once purchased they are archived in your Notebook and may be streamed or downloaded. Happy Stitches!
