Blog Post: This hat is one of 8 patterns I designed and produced for my stall at Yarndale 2017 I have blogged about this pattern and the other patterns at the time - click here to read more!

My design ideas and advice: I love all my patterns to be simple to read as possible. I want knitters to easily and smoothly knit a project. There will always be moments in a pattern when you will think what does that mean? But I hope that knitters get to the solution quicker with my patterns. I designed this hat for many reasons – one because I have always wanted a hat with this stitch technique on it! Two because it is the same pattern as the tank top I designed in this series of patterns and I always love to do a hat or accessory so some knitters can try out the technique or shades on a small project before starting the garment project and I could go on with other reasons but I’ll keep it brief for now, maybe I’ll add some other time!
