I'm Alex Tinsey and I design stuff! I like simple textures and interesting shapes. I like soft wools and kettle-dyes. I like ice cream. Addis. Hats. Spinning. Ducklings. And I like you too, sugar cheeks. I can?t say I care for bio-writing, though. Boring stuff: I graduated with a degree in psychology (still in mint condition!) from Reed College, after dinking around at the Pacific Northwest College of Art and Kenyon College for a while. I've been knitting since about 2004, designing since about 2006. I was making up my very own garter stitch squares and randomly-decreased hats before that, but I won't count it. I've had patterns published in Knitty, Knit Simple, the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program, and Interweave Knits, though I generally go the self-publishing route.View all patterns by designer (24) »
Occam's Beanie: "The simplest hat is often the best"
This hat is supremely simple, yet wonderfully satisfying and stylish. Use any nice worsted weight yarn with a touch of drape- the Madelinetosh Vintage is a treat and silk/wool blends work fabulously as well. A great unisex hat that will fit most ages- work at a slightly smaller gauge for small children, or slightly larger for huge heads.
