Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cast on, knit, purl, bind off, knit in the round

Pattern Description:

The Purl Twist Knot stitch has been around a long time. I know this because I used it to make a special sweater for a much loved and respected high school Biology teacher back in 1963 and my grandmother passed this stitch down to me from Who Knows When. It's an easy stitch that makes a beautiful textured fabric.

My design is easy too! You can knit up a slouchy hat like I did or knit it a bit shorter and make a closer fit beanie.

If you can cast on, knit, purl, bind off and knit in the round, you should find this an easy and quick knit.

As with all my designs, please feel free to contact me at the Email address listed in the pattern if you have any questions as you work up the design. It's important to me that you're thrilled with your purchase, have fun knitting up my design and end up with a hat you will be proud of.

And as always, thank you for considering my design and a special thanks and a lot of affection goes to my many Followers/Admirers. You all have a special place in my heart.
