Red Riding Hat

from Jackie Murton Designs
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Red Riding Hat
Red Riding Hat blocking
Red Riding Hat fingering weight
Red Riding Hat worsted weight
Red Riding Hat
Red Riding Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round
  • working lace pattern

Pattern Description:

This pattern was written for Unplanned Peacock Studio's Fiber Club 2013. Last year's theme was Fairy tales. This pattern was inspired by the classic tale of Little Red Riding Hood as she ventures on her journey to Grandma's house.

This pattern comes in 3 sizes and is available for 2 different weight yarns. (Worsted and Fingering)

If you received this as part of the fiber club, note that I have added notations about bind off and blocking:

**BIND OFF**: If you tend to bind off tightly, you may want to use the sewn off method* or bind off using a needle 2 sizes larger than the working needle.

**BLOCKING:** place hat in a bowl of cold water, squeeze out excess moisture, place hat on an inverted dinner plate. Allow to dry thoroughly.

This pattern is for your own personal use. Please do not sell this pattern or any finished object without express written consent of the designer.
