The Knit Vibe: Chaleur by Kate Gagnon Osborn

Vickie Howell’s new book, The Knit Vibe, was released today and I’m delighted to share my contribution, Chaleur! Chaleur is a quintessentially “Kate” hat: deep ribbing, intricate cables, integrated increases and decreases, and a slouchy fit are all incorporated into the design. Knit in Scout in orchid heather, Chaleur is a wooly, modern, and functional design and a super fun knit. The pink as shown is a great color to brighten you up on cold winter days, but it would also look amazing in one of the gorgeous neutrals or greens in the Scout palette. All of the designs in The Knit Vibe are up on Ravelry, where you can queue and heart Chaleur. Ask for the book at your LYS or find it at a local bookseller via Indiebound. Images: Traci Goudie
