Christina & Cap
Yarn: Sport Weight

Years ago mothers
and grandmothers asked me for a lightweight Aran design for babies and
toddlers. These requests inspired Christina.
Panels of Wave of
Honey, Double Ring, Gordian Knot and Seed Stitch, which are a few of
the easier Aran patterns, make Christina & Cap a relatively
quick knit on #6 needles. Aran designs are best suited for intermediate
and, of course, advanced needle workers.
To celebrate its
sixth printing, I created a cap for Christina – featuring a roll brim
with the Aran patterns around the crown of the cap.
Aran patterns have
more depth and greater stitch definition when they are knit with smooth
evenly spun yarns, the spinning method is called worsted spun.
Superwash wools take
comfort a step further for younger children because this process, which
originated in Europe, produces whisper-soft, non-allergic wool, which
is also machine-washable.
