I've been creating things since I can remember. I have done all kinds of needlecraft, knitting, crochet, but as a rule I keep coming back to knitting. It is my favorite craft so far. I have created my own patterns since I started knitting as a child. A few years ago I learned how to write them down so I can share them with more knitters. Even though there is a lot of math involved in pattern writing, I enjoy it occasionally. This pattern store is a way for me to share them. Thank you for stopping by.

Although the beret was mainly improvised, when finished, the top part made me think of the desert sun. Knitted in the round, from the bottom up, this piece is versatile, wearable as a hat as well as a beret. It is comfortable enough in moderately cool nights, or in the winter. The samples are worn in Chicago,IL, in the winter, and in Flagstaff, AZ, in late summer.
