One more day for Knit Stars & North Stars Rising Toque!

North-Stars-Rising_3.jpg

Enrollment for Knit Stars 3.0 closes tomorrow, and I want to share a bit more about the special hat pattern that Knit Stars participants will get.

North Stars Rising

A classic northern star motif embellishes this cozy cold-weather toque. With big stitches and a clever crown design, this is a great project for practicing your colourwork skills and getting fast, bold results.
