I am so happy to finally get to share some exciting news - my North Toque pattern is in the upcoming Autumn 2015 issue of Pom Pom Quarterly magazine! If you haven't seen the magazine before, I urge you to check it out - it's just beautiful. I am honoured to be part of this issue and in the company of such talented designers, and was blown away by these gorgeous images shot by Amy Gwatkin (and which the magazine very generously shared with me to share with you).
I've been keeping this one under my hat (see what I did there?) for some time, having submitted the proposal way back in March. I literally danced around my kitchen when I got the news that it was accepted. Of course, then I had to actually write the pattern. It was the first time I'd ever written more than one size for anything, and let me tell you, it was hard work, but so rewarding. And everyone at Pom Pom was just so lovely - I really couldn't have asked for a better experience. A very big thank you goes out to all of them :)
The toque itself is made in Icelandic Álafoss Lopi wool (surprise, surprise), which fits perfectly with the issue's wool theme. You can see a preview on Pom Pom's website, as well as order print and/or digital copies. I cannot wait to get the print copy in my hands! Oh, and there's a Ravelry page too, in case you'd like to add this to your queue.
