Hearts & Diamonds

  • Beth Whiteside Design Hearts and Diamonds

Hearts & Diamonds surrounds your head with color, keeping it warm even on a winter beach day (aka July in San Francisco). Background or pattern, one remains the same while you change colors every few rounds for the other. Make it light or dark, and the rest of the colors will POP!

Convertible

  • Beth Whiteside Design Convertible

Imagine: a little red convertible, the Pacific Coast Highway, you and your bestie. Sunglasses on, wind in your face, and the scenery rolls by, sand and beach and mountains. You’re a star in your own movie. And your hair is kept perfectly coiffured by the cowl that can be worn up on the road and down around town.

Convertible is knit from the neck down in the round, with increases shaping the lower skirt. Multicolor yarns may pool color in unexpected ways in the skirt portion as the number of stitches increases. Dyeing method is the main reason for this and is part of the charm of hand-dyed yarn!
