Zooey


Meet Zooey.  Named for the J.D. Salinger character, Zooey Glass. I don’t know if he would have actually worn this hat, but I like to think that he would’ve enjoyed some Fair Isle.  I’m working on some Franny mittens. I’m about halfway through the first one.  The design will be similar, with some variety on the palm.  I hope to have a preview of these up by next week.

The pdf can be found here:  Zooey-Final.  It is available in small, medium, and large sizes with dimensions of those sizes described in the pattern.

Please inform me of any errors you find. I tested all of the sizes myself, but I am human, and well, humans make some errors.

Edited to add: I was told that the links on the pdf are not working. The Italian Tubular Cast On was found here and the Fair Isle weaving technique is here.

Oy. The Ravelympics. I was planning on completing the Minimalist Cardigan, but the Olympics snuck up on me quicker than I imagined.  I might refine my goal to include finishing the Franny mittens, writing, and posting the pattern by the end of the Olympics.  There is too much other stuff going on at the moment to dedicate all my knitting energy to a sweater, and I feel like I’m on a roll with these patterns, so I want to keep the momentum going.

Other stuff that’s happening:

If you live in the Fayetteville, AR area, you should come to this album release party.  Some friends of mine have been working on this album for months, and this party will be the result of all their collaboration and delicate labor.  I will also be playing the flute on one song.  I’m terrified.  I haven’t played the flute in about 14 years with any regularity.  It will be an adventure.

  1. Thank you so much for the pattern, I can wait to make it! I usually make berets, because ‘regular’ hats pattern so rarely attract me, but this one is definitely an exception! :)

  2. I love this hat..totally cute. I think I even have some similar colors in my stash…which is good since I love the colors you chose! Love the name too. Never read Franny and Zooey…but I do love me some Zooey Deschanel.

  3. I LOVE beautiful colorwork patterns that don’t make me want to bash my brains in to knit them. Thank you for sharing the pattern, it’s a gorgeous hat.
