Reflections: Patterns for reflective yarn

Written by Fiber Rhythm

I’ve had so many ideas for patterns to knit with reflective yarn… but somehow have not gotten around to developing many of them yet. I think one issue is motivation– pretty much any pattern out there could work as is and you just add in the reflective yarn throughout or just with a stripe or two– so why make any more?  As time goes on, however, I will get some of these done and into a booklet, So if you have any requests, now is the time to ask!

Regardless, for Christmas (and yes, Christmas was the promise and I knit into January to get them done), I knit reflective hats for all the guys in the family with Art by Eve’s Betsy yarn, Retroglo 1/69″ and the Team Zissou beanie pattern by Janice Kang.  Well received and they look great!  The one shown here is in the orange~ similar to the movie (The Life Aquatic)~ just as my son requested. The others were in blue and red. Then I made mine in leftovers from these three and a sock I’d done in purple…
