Weekend Head Warmer ~Free Pattern~
I have been knitting hats non-stop for my shameless self promotion bit and, in doing so, I would love to start adding some knitting patterns to my blog. When I normally work on something sans pattern, I jot down little notes.
Notes not even long enough to fit on the back of a movie stub ticket. CO…work….BO
Yet, somehow I always manage to remember exactly what I have done, how many rows I have done it for, etc.
This evening I decided that I would turn my latest creation into an actual written out pattern and post to Ravelry (my first time, I think I screwed something up but nothing is right your first time).
It is funny how my little notes can get written into a full length 3 page pattern, (hopefully) well written enough for a beginner knitter to understand.
I have had this idea thrumming around in my head for quite sometime of working up a hat pattern incorporating the basket weave stitch. Simplicity has always been my forte and I like the look of the basket weave stitch. So finally I was able to sit down and fully write out my notes into an actual user friendly pattern. After much (and I do mean much…helps if you let people know what yarn and needle sizes you used) editing to one simple “offering free of charge” hat pattern and I was finally able to add it to Ravelry’s database.
The pattern is simple enough that anyone wanting to begin making hand knitted hats can as well as mindless enough for adventurous knitters to make.
A simple hat pattern, cup of coffee, and a movie is basically all I need for a great relaxing evening.
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick in Charcoal
Needles: 16″ circulars in US Sizes 11 & Sizes 13 as well as US Size 13 DPNs
Size: To fit adults heads ranging from 20″ to 22″
A movie (optional)
Edited to add: The pdf pattern is 3 pages long but set up so the actual pattern is on the third page. To save printer ink as well as paper.
The super bulky yarn combined with simple knit and purl stitches makes for a very easy pattern yet stylish enough to wear all weekend long. The basket weave stitch adds to the scrunchability and slouchyness of the hat.

P.S. As a little “thank you” for enjoying my pattern, you have my blessing to sell the item(s) you make from the pattern. Not the pattern itself, that’s bad karma.
