Knitbot Snack Size Pattern Series: Day Beret + Tricolor Cowl

Have you had a chance to check out Hannah Fettig's new "Snack Size Pattern Series"? {rav link} In her words, the series of patterns are a collection of "classic accessories you can work up for the cooler weather ahead."

Intended to be easy, fun, well designed, modern and classic - great go-to patterns to feature one - or a few! - of your favorite yarns in order to create beautiful accessories, the first two patterns in the series feature Acadia, and Canopy Fingering. We get a lot of requests for patterns like these from our stockists and knitters, and are delighted that Hannah has chosen to feature some of our yarns in the collection.

The first pattern, the Day Beret {rav link}, is a ribbed and stockinette stitch beret sized for children and adults and features our new yarn, Acadia in Bog and Blue Heron.
