it’s up! click here for the pdf. it’s not fancy and it’s all on one page (i love that in a pattern!!).

i’ve had luck with caron simply soft for a novelty item, but i did a bunch in plymouth encore this year and they’re fully functional, a tighter knit and a nicer material, warm and cozy. any worsted weight will do, and you don’t need more than 50 yards of any of the colors. please do let me know if you work it and like it. and i’d love to see photos of your loved ones wearing them! i have an album at flickr with some of mine! it’s already posted to ravelry as a pattern, if you’re there and want to document the project.
if you’re in my area, i’ll be teaching this hat as a workshop on saturday, october 6th at yarn haven in perrysburg. if you’re new to knitting in the round, this is a super easy project. you’ll learn knitting in the round, on double points or circulars, changing the color of the yarn you’re working with, and decreasing.
please don’t sell the hats you make from this pattern, unless you run it by me. also, please direct folks here rather than reposting the pattern somewhere else. enjoy!
