I am a hand knitter, crocheter, machine knitter, and have recently begun using a circular sock machine (csm). I manufacture some hard-to find knitting accessories such as the multiple yarn twister/winder, machine knitters GARTER BARS, mini garter bars, and needle stoppers. I also write and sell CUT-SEW-FELT Patterns using recycled sweaters, as well as hand-knitting & crochet patterns.
I LOVE to hand knit most of all. Easy projects are my game as we travel quite a bit and I love to knit no-brainers. oh yeah, and as you can see by my patterns.....I am the slipper Queen!
Check out my blog where I have many FREE patterns: auntekristy.blogspot.com

This is a ziggity-zaggity hat. I love making ripples and was inspired to make a hat using them. This is what I came up with. I think it is reminiscent of a 1930's look for some reason. This is a simple zig-zag/ripple all in garter stitch except for a few rows of stockinette to finish it up at the crown. The use of a varigated yarn as the main yarn will really add to it's interest. A very small amount of 2 contrast color yarns are needed for striping. This is a one-size pattern that should fit an average woman's size head. Gauge is 5 sts & 7 rows = 1". Suggested yarns would include Malabrigo Rios, Knit Picks Chroma, to name a few.
You will knit the main part of the hat, simple sewing for the seam, then pick up and knit the crown in the round with the double points.
A simple pattern repeat, easy to memorize. A fast knit that will make a great gift or craft show item. As with all my patterns please feel free to make and sell as many as you want!
