This weekend I traveled up to Maine and explored Monhegan Island for the day. As always, it was beautiful with a foggy morning that turned into a bright and sunny day. I love seeing all the different people on the island – the working boats, pulling up traps and the artists tucked in the gardens or along the cliffs painting the landscape. Between the misty morning and all the beautiful people on their boats, I was longing for some wool in my hands. Everything was inspiring me to make.
When I was looking through our Fall collection, I remembered we have a beautiful cap that would be right at home on Monhegan Island. Donnely is a warm fall and winter cap knit in Berroco Inca Tweed, and it’s exactly what I want to wear when the weather turns cool in Providence.
The pattern stitch is an airy rib, worked by knitting your knits of the rib stitch in the row below. Once you get the hang of it, the technique isn’t too tricky.
Follow along as I demonstrate the Fisherman’s Rib.
Knit this for the early foggy mornings this fall.
