This hat coming soon.

We're excited to announce a new type of decrease that can literally change the way you knit! No kidding. The new Showy & Subtle Decreases are worked over two rows starting with the row before the decrease. It's a simple concept that opens up so many possibilities. Decreases that pop off the knit fabric or virtually disappear when you want them to.

More Options With these two basic concepts we've created an entire series of decreases: right and left slanting, double decreases and a wonderful center decrease that joins a series of decreases.

But wait there's more ...
Try using these decreases in many stitch patterns and you will be amazed at the transformation. Eyelet patterns lie more smoothly in the fabric and accent stitches are clearly defined. And best of all, it's simple to understand and knit. This is not intricate lace knitting (although lace knitters will want to try them too). There are so many applications that we'll be rolling out ideas for months to come!
