My name is Tracy and I am a freelance knit/crochet designer living and working in the scenic Peak District area in the UK. I have knitted almost as long as I have walked, having been taught at a very young age by my aunt. I quickly caught the knitting bug and have almost always had at least one project on the go ever since!! I find knitting incredibly therapeutic and get totally immersed in the design process.
I have been selling my pattern designs for the past 4 years - a process now made much easier since the revolution of the .pdf file! My patterns have been sold all over the world and I love it when knitters share their finished projects with me. My favourite designs are those that inspire new knitters to pick up the needles and start a project ... so many of my designs are based on simple stitch patterns that do not take too much concentration to knit and using heavier weight yarns so that projects can be completed quickly.
This is a simple design but very effective when knitted in beautiful yarn and colourways. I have chosen vivid colours for my designs but it would look equally cute in pastel shades. This design is perfect for using up left over yarn - just make sure that it can be knit to the correct tension to ensure the hat comes out at the correct size!!!
