The Windjammer

After a rather long hiatus (over a year, what?!) I am returning to the world of blogging with my first design on Ravelry: the Windjammer Slouchy.

I was inspired to make this hat when I got a lovely package in the mail from Sunshine Yarns. I am a sucker for any club that Dani does and the colour set collection was too much to pass up. When the Windsurf collection was unwrapped I immediately thought of making a hat with colourwork stripes.

The bright aquatic palette reminded me of watching surfers in Maui a few years ago on vacation and I set to work to create a pattern that captured the waves of the ocean and the brightly coloured sails of windsurfers.

With that, I hope you enjoy the Windjammer, available for free download on Ravely! I promise to blog again before another year has passed :)
