Rory Cowl

rorycropGet the look of a layered piece with just one accessory! A classic textured stripe cowl accompanied by a layer of frothy lace, the Rory Cowl, like its namesake, wouldn’t look out of place on an Ivy League campus.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Duality Gloves

dualitycompressThe Duality Gloves feature half-fingers (not as hard as you think they are!) with a delicate lace overlay from wrist to knuckles–all in luscious cashmere. You get the best of both worlds here with warm hands and lovely lace.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Little Infinities Cowl

20150215_104852Soft and warm with a little bit of high contrast colorplay to keep it interesting, the Little Infinities Cowl is perfect for indulging in that beautiful cashmere you’ve been eyeing. And because some infinities are bigger than other infinities, it comes in two sizes—Hazel (small) and Gus (large).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Earhart Cap

20150106_093025A sophisticated twist on the classic aviator, just like Amelia Earhart herself. Sleek but warm, the Earhart Cap features a stitch that looks like a cable but is perfectly flat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Negative Space Mitts

20150105_235454With color play like the Negative Space Mitts, it’s fascinating how the use of high contrast colors can shift the negative space of the pattern depending on which you’re looking at.

Plus, in ultra soft cashmere, you’ll never want to stop touching your own hands.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Perfectly Pooled Hat

perfectlypooledThere are few things more satisfying than getting a beautiful skein of variegated yarn and then having it work up into exactly the pattern you hoped it would. The Perfectly Pooled Hat is written for Three Irish Girls’ StevenBe exclusive color, Care Bear Stare (available here and the Exploding TARDIS colorway available here). I can’t guarantee its effect on other variegated yarns but don’t be afraid to find out! Care Bear Stare is dyed half rainbow and half clouds/sky so anything dyed similarly may give you a similar hat.

This is also just an awesome basic worsted hat pattern–it works up really quickly. Plus, it’s free!

 

 

 

Cap’s Cap

20141217_111917Double knit in gorgeous hand-dyed yarn (which makes it awesomely reversible), Cap’s Cap is a hat that you can depend on to keep you warm and make you look cool.

Inspired by the new Nerd Alert collection colors by Three Irish Girls for StevenBe, you can get both this hat and Cap’s Mitts out of one skein of each of the colors.

 

 

 

 

 

Cap’s Mitts

20141217_112222You can wear Cap’s Mitts while battling to save the world or imagining that you’re holding Chris Evans’ hand.
