Thanks for dropping by! TessKnits.com is currently undergoing a long-overdue reboot, but you can still access the previous incarnation under “BLOG” on the top menu.
This is the second post in a series about scarves I am knitting, inspired by some creative, artistic knitted scarves I saw in a gallery a few months ago. (For more background, please visit the post for Beach Gallery Scarf I.)

A couple of months ago I was out at the coast, and saw some knitted scarves in a gallery. Technically speaking, they were very simple, but they were beautiful, and the price tags on them were in three digits, in some cases. So I was inspired to try to create my own version.
First up: a slouchy, ribby, fashion-forward adult hat. The pattern is “Super Cupcake” by ChicKnits, and it uses the K1B method to create the stitch pattern that she calls Shaker Rib, but is also known as Brioche Stitch, and those of us who remember the 80’s called it Fisherman’s Rib.
It has come to my attention that the dates for the Gift Baby Sweater were mixed up, both on the shop website and in my last post (where I copied and pasted the dates from the shop website).
