I added another free pattern earlier in the week – it didn’t seem right to plug it in amongst my ratings about VATMoss, so here’s the link and a picture of what you could create:
It’s a quick knit and a good way to use up some leftover DK yarn so you might just rustle one up by Christmas…!?
The response to my pattern being added to the blog took me by surprise! There have been loads of visits and downloads and it’s now in 50 queues over on Ravelry – I will be so pleased as and when anyone knits one up. It must be really amazing if you are a proper designer and see people walking around wearing things that you have designed – I wonder if the novelty wears off? I’d be unbearable if I saw someone wearing one of my hats!
I can see from the magic stats thingy on here that this blog has started coming up in response to people searching for free patterns. I could understand people being directed here when they search for ‘free knitting hat pattern’ or ‘free chemo hat pattern’. I am still trying to understand what the person (or people?) were truely seeking when they typed in ‘fruit free hat knitting pattern’ though? A hat free from fruit? A free pattern for a hat to go on a banana? There could be a whole new market out there…
My first attempt at a written knitting pattern is now available via the FREE PATTERNS link at the top of the blog.
The pattern’s for this very cozy and totally reversible double-knitted ‘Rectangly Hat’. The concept of double-knitting (knitting two layers at the same time) fascinated me. This hat was made after knitting a swatch to find out how the technique worked and wanting to experiment with a larger project.
Hopefully I’ll get this pattern set up on Ravelry tomorrow. If you decide to give it a go, do let me know how it works out!
