One more wintry set while we are still snow-covered here in the Midwest. Hopes of spring are growing each and everyday!
Tupelo, is a slightly slouchy set of arm warmers and a hat with fun and feminine little details.
These little sleeves and hat are simple and feminine, adding that “little something” to a cool-weather outfit.
Mock cable and eyelet ribbing, with a unique rippling cable on the hat, gives way to simple, cozy stockinette stitch.
My inspiration for this design comes from one of my favorite treats, Tupelo honey:
For only two weeks every spring, White Tupelo Trees in the Southeastern swamps bloom and the sweet, coveted Tupelo honey is harvested. The sweet little details on this hat reflect the mellow, clean sweetness of the hoeny, while the cables imitate slow moving ripples of this liquid sunshine.
The Simple Taupe colorway was impossible to walk away from when I discovered it at my local yarn shop. I seriously could not walk away from it. It was so simple and beautiful in it's wonderful neutrality, I just knew it needed the perfect combo of details and simplicity to show it off.
As always, many more pics and details are up on ravelry, so be sure to check out the shop there if you want to see more! Addiesma Designs on ravelry.
