Grassland Flower Panama Hat

I believe the summer is still a perfect time for pretty knitted hats. So please welcome my new knitting design – Grassland Flower Panama Hat.

This stylish panama hat is knitted in the round with beautiful lace stitch and decorated with large knitted flower. The flower is knitted on straight needles.

For this project I used Egyptian cotton from Lana Grossa. The brim of hat is knitted with two strands of yarn and the body of hat is knitted with one strand.

The knitting pattern for the Grassland Flower Panama Hat is available from my pattern stores:

Diamond Drops Cardigan

Finally, summer has come to the UK and I had a chance to take pictures of couple of my new knitting projects. So today I’d like to share my Diamond Drops Cardigan which I have designed for my younger daughter. 

Diamond Drops Cardigan is knitted with Mary Maxim Fresh Yarn. This pretty and light weight yarn is perfect for summer and spring knitting projects. 100g skein of yarn contains 290 yards. So for this cardigan I used just two skeins of yarn for the size 12-18 months.

I combined two pretty and easy to knit stitches for this cardigan and separated them with couple of rows in garter stitch. I really love how it turned out. Small girls look so gorgeous in swingy shape closing. Front, back and sleeves of the cardigan are knitted separately and then sewn together. The button bands are worked as you go.
