Gem Box Hat PDF Knitting Pattern

Featuring cathedral-like arches soaring between stained-glass “gem boxes”, the Gem Box Hat is an excellent choice for showcasing small skeins of luxury yarn. The slip-stitch pattern breaks up color runs, preventing pooling in hand-painted skeins. It’s a quick, engaging knit, suitable for everyone from intrepid beginners and up. There is no stranding required - the hat uses mosaic colorwork and slipped stitches to create the patterning.

The Gem Box Hat is available in both standard and Low Vision Accessible (LVA) format. You receive access to BOTH downloads when you purchase this knitting pattern.

I absolutely LOVE these! I've wanted a pair of leg warmers for a long time, so I reached out to Shell to commission a pair. They worked with me to decide a color and pattern I loved, and sent me updates every step of the way. These leg warmers fit me perfectly, are GORGEOUS, and are amazing at keeping my always-cold legs warm while sitting at a desk all day WFH. Can't recommend Shell and their shop any more highly!

This yarn is even prettier in person than it is in the photo! It’s so soft. The shipping was super fast, too!

I love these fingerless gloves! They're soft, warm, and very comfortable. My apartment has been pretty chilly lately, so I got these to wear while working from home- and they're perfect for this. Shipping was super fast as well.
