I’m pleased to announce that I just released my third for sale knitting pattern! It uses less than one total 100 gram skein of worsted weight yarn and is called Sydney Fireworks Hat. It features a two color slipped stitch pattern.
You can buy it and read more about it on Ravelry (you don’t have to be a member!). Click here!
The Sydney Fireworks Hat is knit with a repeating slipped stitch pattern and alternating two colors to create a unique texture and squishy warm fabric. Knitting starts at the brim with elastic 2×2 ribbing then the body of the hat is worked with stripes of color and slipped stitches before decreasing in pattern towards the crown. The hat is available in four different hat sizes and the pattern has been test knitted and tech edited.
