RIOS ROCKS | Just to let you know that my Rios Rocks Hat Collection (e-book) is 25% off until midnight GMT 31st December 2017. No coupon code needed.
Hats make the perfect quick gift as they are super fast to knit (I can make one in an evening) and only require one skein of worsted weight, so the perfect stash buster too!
If you haven’t tried Malabrigo Rios yarn yet just look at all the pretty colour options here I’m itching to get some Matisse Blue!
Why did I create this collection? Well I was watching the Olympic Games in Rio last summer (2016) and knitting with some Rios yarn. I made the connection between Rio and Rios by pure chance and then thought about creating a collection using the colours from the Olympic Rings – Black, Green, Yellow, Red and Blue.
The ebook contains a hat design using each of the 5 colours and the 6th hat on the ebook cover came about because I wanted to make sure to use up all the leftovers! So I added a skein of Rios in Pearl Grey as the main colour and used the 5 Olympic Rings colours as part of the Fairisle Design. The design itself is based on South American Aztec patterns so that it ties it all in with the Rio theme.

…and you are probably noticing that the cover says Volume One. So does that mean there is more collections coming?
Well, of course the answer it yes! I have another coming soon…
In the meantime happy knitting
