Ultraviolet Knits – Phare Hat

Phare Hat

Inspired by lighthouses perched on the coastline, I named this hat pattern for the French word for lighthouse. With slipped stitches and textures to emulate the beacon of light. The hat pattern has three sizes and can be topped off with a pompom. It is one of those hats that once you put it on, you feel cosy and forget it’s there until you take it off.

About Ultraviolet Knits

My latest book, Ultraviolet Knits: Twelve knitting patterns featuring UV-reactive hand-dyed wool (Anchor and Bee, 2020), was released at the end of March. This collection features 12 original accessory knitting patterns designed with black light-reactive hand-dyed wool-based yarns.This collection is inspired by the night’s sky, some from the view from Earth, such as star-gazing from a porch swing, while others pay homage to astronomy. Each of the 12 accessory patterns works well with bold, speckled, and vibrant yarns as well as semi-solid and neutrals, making the designs well suited for using those treasured skeins in your yarn collection. These accessory designs are excellent for travel knitting given their size. For festival-goers or everyday use, these finished objects are ones you’ll want to wear.

Where to Buy the Book

Individual patterns from Ultraviolet Knits will be available on Ravelry in October 2020, but until then you can treat yourself to the entire 12-pattern collection. Each week during June, July, and August, I’ll profile one of the patterns from Ultraviolet Knits in a blog post like this one. You can access a list of all the related posts HERE!

I’m including a partial list  of online retailers selling the book, though you can likely provide your local independent bookshop with the ISBN and they can order it for you.
