WHAKAIRO TOP by Francoise Danoy
The Whakairo Top by our very own Knit Star Francoise Danoy would be the perfect project for your favorite color of Hella Hank! This beautiful top, inspired by traditional Maori wood carving, is worked bottom-up, in the round until the armhole separation, where each side is worked flat. The drop shoulder, boxy type fit with minimal shaping only at the armholes, makes it really easy to make adjustments as you please.
This top is designed to be worn with about 4" of positive ease, with a boxy fit, and is written for finished bust measurements of 36-66". You’ll need 2 Hella Hanks for finished bust sizes 32-42” or 3 hanks for sizes 44-62”. Recommended needle size is US 5. This size-inclusive pattern is available on Ravelry.com.
Please note that the pictured Whakairo Top model is intended to show the design of the top, but is shown in a different yarn.
BEAR LIGHTS SHAWL by Joanne Bint
If you're looking for a one-Hella-skein knit of relaxation, try "Bear Lights" by Joanne Bint, a free pattern that gives you the freedom to keep knitting until you run out of yarn. This reversible, super-wearable shawl will take one skein of Hella Hank. Recommended needle size US 6.

RANUNCULUS pullover by Midori Hirose
Ranunculus by Midori Hirose is a round yoke pullover with lace and textured stitches. Its boxy shape is flattering on oh-so-many body types and most sizes can be knit with just ONE SKEIN of Emma's Yarn Hella Hank.
Oh, but it gets even better.
You can customize with a smaller boat neckline or
wider boat neckline...
...short sleeves, long puff sleeves with diagonal cuff line, or
long puff sleeves with normal cuff line. OR try Ravelry user Roko's easy Flutter Sleeve modification just like our Loops Trooper Deborah used! *soooooo preeeeety*
The pullover is worked seamlessly from the top down and it's a surprisingly quick project at a very loose gauge with larger needles. The combination of thin yarn and big needles gives a light, transparent and airy texture to this pullover.
We have six hand-dyed colors for you to choose from, including the exclusive hue for your Ranunculus, Caliente!
One skein needed for bust sizes 32 - 46. If you are making the 48" OR modifying for a larger bust OR making long sleeves, you may need two skeins. Recommended needle size US 10.
This is the ultimate Hot Loops project. One skein + a free pattern with a two row repeat takes you from "What in the world should I knit next?" to "I just finished this FANTASTIC piece!" in no time.
Lisa Jensen designed the Helluva Scarf specifically for these 600 yards of hand-dyed speckles and hues with a meditative slipped stitch pattern that avoids pooling. Knit in a loose gauge, it has that lovely drape of a perfect spring and summer accessory piece.
Knit this beauty with one skein of Emma's Hella Hank on size 7 needles. Shown in colorway Purple Rain.
STORM SHAWL by Joji Locatelli
Loops Loves Joji.
Her well-written patterns take a simple project and look at it in a new light, giving a unique and artful touch to your work.
In her Storm Shawl, what looks like a simple crescent with eyelets and dropped stitches is made special with short rows that change the balance of the traditional crescent. The eyelets swing across the shawl with energy and the dropped stitches add movement and drape that's perfect for a spring and summer shawl!
Now to the super-special Hot Loops yarn pairing!
