Comfortable, casual and hip, Seattle is a simple, lightweight knit designed to showcase your favorite fingering weight yarns. This beanie was requested by my little brother who was diagnosed with bone cancer at age 18. Due to the necessary chemotherapy treatments, he subsequently lost all his hair and wanted a "cool hipster chemo hat" to keep his head warm. The name for this pattern is inspired by and dedicated to Seattle Children's Hospital and all the important work and research they do for children and teens. Because of their dedication to my brother's care and treatment, he has won his year-long battle with cancer!
Pattern includes helpful photos and written instructions including tips on all stitches and techniques needed.
4 st/ 6.5 rows= 1 inch in stockinette stitch
219 yards of Fingering weight

Despite telling my mom years ago that I would never become a knitter, I took up a pair of needles in 2009 and haven’t put them down since! Knitting is an outlet for my creative energy and my desire to always be making things with my hands. My goal as a designer is to create unique knitting patterns; inspired by the beautiful, wild and rugged landscape of the Pacific Northwest--a place I loves to explore and am privileged to call home. I strives to write patterns that are easy to follow and simply enjoyable both to knit and to wear.
Keeping busy by day as a wife, mother of three and homemaker, I love to spend my evenings curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee, knitting, planning and sketching my never-ending design ideas. :)
If you have an questions about any of my patterns, would like to become a test knitter or to set up a trunk show, please feel free to contact me! I’d love to help!
