PATTERN DETAILS

I knit newborn hats for a hospital nursery and decided to attempt a new cast on called a German Twisted Knit Cast-On. I wanted a hat with a lot of stretch to it and easy enough for a beginning knitter with a little experience. The cast on I used is optional, but W-O-W do I ever love it! The rest of the hat is a piece of cake, It's basically all ribbed stitches, braided ties, an I-cord flower for a girl hat and a pom-pom for a boy hat. It literally knits up in less than two hours! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl decreases increases GAUGE 3.25 and 5 rounds = 1 inch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Length 5.5 inches, base circumference 12 inches, body of hat 18 inches SUGGESTED YARN 50 yards of Bulky weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Deborah Norville's Serenity Chunky or Loops & Threads Charisma

I have been knitting for 60 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together! I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at woohoopepper@hotmail.com with any of your questions or concerns. You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you and happy knitting!
