Judith Brand created this marvellous crochet beanie hat with musical notation in mind and even managed to recreate some of them with crochet stitches. The hat is formed with columns of stitches in a > shape, which correlates to the musical notation for "decrescendo", meaning a gradual lessening in volume. A super fun and quick project that you'll have off your hook before you can exclaim "allegro". The perfect gift for a music loving friend!

For this statement sweater design, Johanna Kunin took inspiration from a piano piece by the composer Frederic Chopin where three notes must be played with one hand in the time that it takes to play four with the other. The uneven sequence of colourwork blocks and melding of black and white throughout represent the polyrhythm formed that is now a staple in modern music from jazz to songs sung by Britney Spears. Knitted from the bottom up in the round with raglan sleeves, stranded colourwork and folded neck.
