Wavy welts done in feather and fan while knitting the rows from top to bottom along with short row shaping give this hat a new and interesting look. There are no circular needles required, it is knit flat.
Go ahead, just cast on and work flat. The only stitches you need to know are knit, purl, slip stitch, knit two together and knit two into one. The finished hat will have just enough stretch and a feminine, sophisticated look.
You will fall in love with this hat as soon as it is finished. Enjoy.
I like to keep the price of my patterns low because as a knitter, I know that I'd rather spend my money on lovely yarns than on patterns but this pattern took considerably more work to complete than the others hence the greater cost to the user. Happy knitting.
** WARNING; The making of these hats with this pattern might be habit forming. These even more so than the previously listed patterns. You could find yourself with far too many of these sweet little wavy welted hats so be prepared to share.

Many, many years ago, I was taught to knit by my dear maternal Irish grandmother. She was not well off and did not have a lot to share, but the dear old woman with a third grade education from the old country and a heavy brogue on her tongue, shared her love and her knowledge of knitting. She was such a sweet dear heart. Then came the Girl Scouts, my troop leaders pushed me to knit more seriously but still it was just flat work. I have been knitting off and on since those early days but was never really satisfied with my product. Then a few years ago I discovered **Knitting Haven,** a lovely little corner of the internet where I was encouraged to further flourish my needles. I asked questions, got answers and found some lovely friends. Now I design in yarn and write knitting patterns.
There are some great ladies on that webpage. :-D Thanks a big bunch Holly, no really, thank you.
My books (my fiction ramblings) and my original patterns are available both here and on Amazon through this link;
I try to keep the my pattern prices as low as is realistic because, as a knitter, I know I would much rather spend my precious funds on lots of lovely delicious yarns. Those patterns that took me great mental gymnastics and much time ripping out, rethinking and redoing, will cost a bit more but for the most part, I think you find my patterns very fairly priced.
Feel free to contact me through Craftsy or on my author's page on Facebook to learn what's new , I love hearing from my fellow knitters. I will try to resolve any confusion I may cause with typos or temporary lapses of sanity ;-) during my writing out of patterns.
