For some reason, this hat initially reminded me of a beehive, which then reminded me of that old school beehive hairdo, which then led me to realize that not only are hats warm and comfy, but they can also be a great hairstyle fix on those days when you just don't feel like having a hairstyle at all. This hat is a great lesson in knits and purls in the round - the 1 x 1 ribbing transitions into a Seed Stitch pattern, demonstrating the different textures that can be accomplished with a very minor tweak in your stitch pattern. The texture looks great with either heavily or slightly variegated yarns. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting in the round Decreasing GAUGE 20 stitches = 4"/10 cm in Seed Stitch pattern.

I have been knitting for a long time (since I was about 7!) and crocheting even longer -- lots of crafting, generally, as long as I can remember. For the past 15 years or so, my focus has been on knitting. I have been teaching knitting for about 5 years. I am a CYCA Certified Knitting Instructor. I teach a variety of knitting classes at Twisted in Portland, OR, where I get to spend my time with lots of wonderful knitters! I taught at the Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene, OR in 2011 and at Sock Summit 2011 in Portland, OR. I am always interested in trying out new forums to teach classes. I also teach private lessons for individuals or small groups. When I’m not knitting, I am an attorney practicing intellectual property law - that’s trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, etc., everything except writing patents. I work on both transactional and litigation matters related to intellectual property.
