Here's a great combo! The #82 Talia Vest (free pattern!) and the #113 Super Cute Newsboy Cap (which includes BABY through Adult size and only needs 1 ball of the yarn!) from Lana T. of Westminster, CA.
She used Drops Karisma superwash in light grey for the Talia Vest and Nashua Handknits creative focus superwash in grey for the Cap.
And here are her comments on both of these great projects:
"I was ecstatic when I came across your website a few months ago because I was looking for a cute pattern for a vest or cardigan to knit.
I fell in love with all your designs because of the lace and cable details. I loved the look of the Talia vest and the cute newsboy cap so I decided to try knitting it for my friend's daughter, as I only have 3 boys.
I just started knitting about 6 months ago, therefore, was very grateful to see the detailed instructions for your patterns.
I cannot wait to dive into another one of Katherine's design. I've already got 2 lined up in my queue. Thanks again for being so creative. You are a #1 knitter/designer in my book." -- Lana T.
Well, thank you so much, Lana, for sharing your finished projects and for such nice comments! They look perfect for your friend's daughter. Super stylin'! Great work knitting them and you were SO fast!! And you only just learned to knit 6 months ago. WOW. You have either a very good teacher or are just a natural for knitting or both!
