Heading Seaward

Today we are visiting CoopKnits – Rachel Coopey for the last stop on  The Boardwalk Collection blog tour and will be focussing on her gorgeous Seaward design. Rachel is best known for her amazing sock patterns and books, but her talents don’t stop there!

The Seaward pattern features two versions – beanie and slouchy – so you can pick whichever best suits you! Below I am wearing the gorgeous beanie version in Padparadscha pink. I just can’t help thinking how cheering this bright hat will be on a grey October day! I literally gasped with joy when the sample fell out of the envelope and into my lap. LOVE.


I loved this version so much I may have convinced Rachel to let me keep the sample and will be knitting her chosen version in Marigold to make up for my utter cheek!

We had some amazing knitters knit the hat in some of the other colours of Islington DK…aren’t they beautiful? Scroll over for details or check out the Ravelry project pages.

Make sure you head over to Rachel to hear more about the design today!

Here are all the stops on the tour. Make sure you check them all out, as they were fantastic!
