I finally got around to designing and knitting a hat for my Lorna's Laces yarn! The color I have is Baltic Sea, so I wanted to design something that reminded me of the ocean. Since I'm in Australia, I breifly considered doing something that would be reminiscent of the reef, but decided that such would not be the best choice for this yarn's colors. The Baltic is a northern sea, and so the design should be of northern waters. I eventually chose a spiral design that I thought would be a very stylized wave pattern. As I knit it, I found that the design did not come out exactly as I was hoping, but made me think instead of Atlantis, if someone came upon it while diving, how the walls might look as a diver approached through dark, murky water. The designs would be unclear. So, I named the design the Bricks of Atlantis: tell me what you think!

That's sooo awesome! It's very evident that the yarn/pattern match was given a ton of thought and it really, really paid off. Excellent work!

Thanks everyone!
Jan, I am still working on creating a booklet of double knitting patterns to sell and I am planning on having it in there, hopefully with matching gloves. Once that is finished I'll be sure to let everyone know!
