Water Street Cap

Water Street Cap

Check out my newest pattern! It’s the Water Street Cap, knit with two balls of Rowan Lima (luscious yarn) in a simple twisted stitch rib. The hat has a bit of slouch and is extremely stretchy. The finished size is 18.5″ (47 cm), and because of the ribbing, it will fit many sizes of heads. The hat pictured fits me (with my big old head) and Mallory (normal adult head).

See the Water Street Cap on Ravelry, too, where you can queue, fave or share!

Why is it called the Water Street Cap? For almost a year I lived on Water Street in downtown NYC in a dorm room while I attended NYU. It was a good dorm. Actually, considering what most dorms across the country probably look like, it was a freaking amazing dorm. The room was so big you probably could have run the 50 yard dash in there, though we never tried. The first year I lived there, on the fourth floor I think, my window looked over the South Street Seaport. The next year I got to choose my room, and I was on the 28th floor.  And then the world changed and I left Water Street forever. But I have fond memories of the place nonetheless, and also? I think it’s a good name for a hat.

We should have some more pictures I think.

I’ve been knitting more in that last few weeks than I have in a while, and it feels so good! There will be patterns to show for it! I think I might even do an eBook that will have a small collection of – surprise! – hats and mittens. I have finally admitted to myself that I am NOT a sweater designer. I will leave that to the experts and stick with what I’m good at. Expect a bevy of hats and mittens that, unlike this new pattern, are colorwork.
