I’m releasing two new hat patterns this summer from my most popular hat designs. Now you can make these great hats for yourself.
This rain hat is perfect rainy days and fun to make. It even comes with instructions for little storage case so you can take it with you instead of bringing a bulky umbrella.
This pattern was first published in the book Hat Shop by Design Collective. You can get a PDF version here.
And one of my favorite summer hats that perfectly covers up my frizzy humidity hair is a classic cotton turban in colorful fabric. This is easy to make and a breeze to wear.
You can get the PDF downloadable pattern here.

I’ve been having so much fun working on my latest yarny project. Most of you know I’m undercover on these projects but I really needed to share these because I think they turned out so great…
I have no idea how long they actually took to make. I worked on them in the evenings while watching 3 different versions of Tess of the Dubervilles among other long, slow period pieces.
The pink one is for a semi-secret mission and the blue one is for my daughter’s 14th birthday. We took down the horrible ceiling fan in her room and wired this up in its place and it works!
I might be out of my mind, but I’m thinking of making more!
I have finally written out my instructions for the crochet turban that I have been making for several years. It was inspired by this great vintage pattern that I found in a box of old sewing things that was left behind in the first house I bought.
It was such a beautiful and simple pattern that I had to give it a try. I experimented with it until I got the pattern exactly how I wanted it with the inexpensive modern yarns I could buy at the craft store. I love to crochet but I am hardly a yarn snob. If I only bought the beautiful but expensive yarns from the yarn shop I would never finish anything. Knitting and crochet, for me, is all about the fun and having great accessories that I can wear (until I’m tired of them and pack them up to be rediscovered later) or give to friends and family as gifts, and no one ever complains that the yarn should have cost more.
So, now you can purchase a copy of my crochet turban pattern at my Etsy store and when you do I will include the entire original vintage pattern as well. I’m imagining seeing turbans of every color imaginable all over the place, a turban revolution if you will.
Enjoy! – Jeni

How did I not know about this book sooner?
It was written by a Scadinavian design duo, looks absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. I guess it’s not too early to start knitting for next year!
Just found this great tutorial from Yellow Suitcase Studio on making a patchwork blanket from felted sweaters. I love this idea, looks like it would make a great gift too. This tutorial is really well done with lots of great photos.
