Head & Hands: Pattern Roundup

The Winter 2021 issue (Head and Hands) was full of patterns, but in case you need some more ideas of projects you can make for your head or hands using your handspun, check out these patterns.

Musselburgh by Ysolda Teague

This hat pattern is a fairly simple design, but it’s set up to include 6 different gauges from laceweight to DK weight, so that gives you a lot of options for handspun. Figure out your gauge and then follow the instructions for that gauge.

Find this pattern on Ravelry or on Ysolda’s website.

Beloved by Tin Can Knits

This hat pattern—a bonnet really—for children and adults is adorable. Grab some of your DK weight handspun and knock this one out in a few hours, especially if you’re making the smaller sizes.

Find this pattern on Ravelry or on the Tin Can Knits website.

Circle & Square by Martina Behm

This hat pattern has a rather unique construction which lends well to playing with color in a handspun yarn. Once you see how the pattern is designed, you could even create some handspun specifically to work with this structure.

Find this pattern on Ravelry or on Martina’s Strickmich! Shop.

Top Down Handspun Hat with a Nice Flat Top by Heidi Nick

The designer says, “This is nothing fancy, just my recipe for a simple top-down hat with a 2×2 rib on the bottom.” And although we can often figure out the math of a pattern for ourselves, sometimes it’s nice to just let someone else do it for you.

Easy Handspun Mitts by Vera Brosgol

This mitts pattern is a great background to show off your handspun. (This is the pattern Rebecca Roy used in her Spinning for a Durable Pair of Mitts post.)

Wabi-sabi Handspun Mitts by Kristen TenDyke

The pattern for these mitts has you knit both at the same time (using both ends from a center pull ball) so you can use as much of your handspun as possible while also not having to worry about running out of yarn for the second mitt!
