One-Skein Beanie Recipe

My uber-terrific SP sent me a beautiful skein of Savanna alpaca-linen-new wool-nylon in a scrumptuous raspberry sorbet color. I thought it might just be the right thing to fashion a new lid out of...and here it is!

I'm really excited because I attempted the punk experiment of creating my own pattern. It's a very simple 8-row lace repeat that looks like cable, and you can make this hat with about 70 m (76 yd) of yarn. Woo-hoo!

So come visit my blog and help yourself to an easy-peasy one-skein beanie pattern. So it's not The Anarchist Cookbook, but we knitters, after all, are quite the renegades.
