Southeast Light Kit pattern download
Named for a lighthouse on Block Island, Southeast Light is a beacon for doing stranded knitting, in small doses. I’ve taken two stitch patterns from AlterKnits and combined them into my favorite pillbox-style hat. This pattern is available as a single-pattern download here or as a kit through North Light Fibers. Southeast Light is jointly produced with North Light Fibers.
The Crown Finale joins the crown visibly, in quadrants. Written instructions and a diagram will get you through, then finish with an embellished Crown Knot.

What’s In the Pattern
The pattern has both written instructions and Action charts to guide you through the color work. Check the Road Map Schematics to stay on track. Scales, the pattern used in the crown, is presented without the shaping for ease of use in swatching. There is the usual guidance given in each section to lead the way.
Shaping charts are provided for each size as well as written instructions in a total of 15 pages with multiple Action charts and two diagrams for the Crown Finale.
In my color Action charts I indicate how many stitches to knit when there are 3 or more consecutive stitches of one color. I find it easier than counting boxes, but unnecessary for fewer than 3 stitches. Written instructions are given for any knitter who doesn’t like charts.
The listed techniques are included in the Southeast Light instructions; other techniques are linked to my techniques database for easy access.
