Project Inspiration: Gleniffer

Posted on

     Adelaide is a squishy new worsted weight merino yarn from Classic Elite- and the price, colors, and medium weight makes it an incredibly versatile choice for both larger garments and small accessories. 

     Adelaide also has excellent stitch definition- which makes it a great choice for the Gleniffer hat. Also, since Adelaide is only $10 a skein- this project will only cost you $16-$26 with the pattern included. (Anyone else thinking "perfect for christmas"?! It may be summer but it's time to start holiday gift knitting!)

Gleniffer is available to download for $6, and it requires 1 - 2 skeins of Adelaide. Purchase the yarn and pattern HERE, or purchase the pattern without the yarn HERE.

     Gleniffer's Lace Rib stitch pattern is a unique one- and I love how the lacey arrow design is broken up by the ribbing in the center. I also like how well Gleniffer's crown decreases pairs with the overall pattern. It's a lovely and well-thought-out unisex design!

     Gleniffer's pattern says that it's written for sizes Adult XS (S, M) for 15¼ (17¼, 19)” head circumferences. The sample in our photos is in size M, which actually fits my typically-sized-XL head just fine! If my big noggin & huge head of hair can comfortably fit in it, I feel safe with saying that even though the pattern is does not have a size L or XL- the sizes are still generous and will probably fit most. 

What do you think? Is there a certain color calling to you? Keep us updated on your progress here, on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, or Ello!

    Lisa is correct! The Gleniffer pattern is $6. We are only able to offer patterns free with yarn purchase when we have permission from the designers. :)

    Sorry, I’m a bit confused, does the Gleniffer pattern come with the purchase of the Adelaide Yarn? Sometimes this is an offer, but the wording is a bit unclear.
    It is a lovely pattern.
