Even a quick perusal of pinkerston's designer page will demonstrate her knit strengths: pretty, lace, wearable hats!

First I'll point out the recently published Yellow Dandelion Beret (pictured). At first I suspected my love of this hat was based (mostly) on that beauuutiful colour, but peeking at her other hats shows that it's more than just a hue: it's a design aesthetic.

A good example of this is Snowflake Hat. I love the (very satisfying) repeated cables and eyelets running up the sides, and I superlove the pom pom. I don't know what it is about a great pom pomed hat. Possibly a nostalgia thing, but this toque really does it for me :)

And, in a nod to unisex design, I'm highlighting her Men's Ski Hat. This is a very attractive, structural hat, wonderfully geometric without being overly manly or plain, and retaining the beauty of knit cables.
