I had a lot of bulky wool blend yarn at home, but nothing to knit with it. So I whipped up these Chubby Cat Hats to be donated to charity! Here's the pattern to them for you.
I offer this free hat knitting pattern for no fee for your own personal use - you may not sell this pattern or the hats you knit using it.
Please if you like this pattern do concider taking a look at the products I advertise here on my website and use my links for your Amazon & co purchases - it earns me a small fee to be able to cover the costs of running this blog!
Please contact me if you find any errors in this pattern.
A while back I bought a ball of Sirdar Just Bamboo in brilliant white just to try it out. It ended up sitting in my stash for a good while before I finally decided to make something with it. One ball of ribbon bamboo is not the easiest thing to think of a project for!
This sock pattern is perfect for self-striping and self-patterning yarn. It can be so boring knitting plain stockinette socks with these yarns, but any complex pattern will not show in the striped yarn, or it will just look bad and messy. This simple moss stitch rib doesn't disturb the colours, but makes the sock more interesting to work on and to look at.
I was making more fingerless mittens for sale for my local animal shelter autumn market and came up with this little pattern. Hope you like it!
I'm calling them Lacey Bubblegum Punk Mitts, as the bubblegum punk style is "girly as well as black". The mittens also remind me of the punky 80's style, so there we have it. You could make these mittens in hot pink as well!
For the KAL/CAL "Pencil Cases for Sudan" which the Ravelry Darfur Group is moderating I finally got my pencil case pattern done as well.
It's great to be able to participate alongside with other generous and talented designers like Wendy or Kieran - see the links to their patterns on the right side navigation bar!
You can get the .pdf version of my pattern here, plus it can be seen here (press "Read more") as a blog entry (and the pattern is even attached here - you should find it!) I wish you all happy knitting and please let me know if you see any mistakes or unclarities in the pattern!
And: don't forget to submit your finished ones to the Flickr group!
