Knitscene Accessories 2013

The online issue of Knitscene Accessories 2013 just came out and we couldn’t be more excited about it.  With two gorgeous projects, the Transistor Hat by Ann McDonald Kelly and the Rukkilill Mitts by Kate Gagnon Osborn, we’ll be ready for those brisk morning walks.

The Transistor Hat by Ann McDonald Kelly features Road to China in Garnet, Riverstone and Ruby.

Transistor Hat

Using a warm color palette in combination with a simple, yet effective garter stitch-striping pattern, this hat is a great on-the-go piece for summer vacations.  Next up is the Rukkilill Mitts by Kate using Canopy Fingering in Orchid and featuring one of our favorite techniques roositud with Canopy Fingering in Parakeet, Tanager, Celeste, Guava and Crocus.


These folk-inspired mitts feature adorable trimmings, including the tiniest of pom-poms.  These mitts are a great addition to any transitional wardrobe and add a touch of vintage to any modern coat.

Both designs showcase different color schemes and leave room for the knitter’s personal color stories to shine through.

    I felt Knitscene has been rather hit of miss lately, which is sad since it’s my favorite knitting magazine. This issue had some GREAT pieces in it, especially Kate’s mitts. I’ve never done roositud before, but I’m packing up for my first trip to Iceland and think I might need to master it by then. These would perfect for traveling!
