This pattern is the adult version of Elana's Corkscrew Beanie - a childs hat I designed from aged newborn to aged 10. A few knitters have mentioned it might be nice in adult sizes too so here it is! This is an easy pattern that is great for a first "knit and purl" project and will get you working in the round as well. For those of you more experienced, it's a fun knit that can be completed in just a few evenings. The result is a really snug, cosy beanie hat that swirls all the way to the top. GAUGE 16 sts and 23 rows per 10cm/4" in stocking stitch, knit flat on 5.5mm (US9) needles.

My mum taught me to knit when I was 5 - I have early memories of sitting with a skein around my wrists while she wound it into a ball. I had a big imagination though and I suppose got interested in other things until I was older. When I was 21, I found myself at a houseparty, and one of the girls there had a bag of knitting. I thought it was so cool, I made her remind me there and then, and since that evening I’ve been hooked. I love the whole process of buying a ball of yarn and turning it into a beautiful garment. I’ve been blogging since 2008 about life, art and things I have been making and selling, and I have been designing for the last couple of years. I trained in pattern cutting and dressmaking and found that the skills I learnt developed into an urge to design knitwear. I’m currently putting patterns together my first book, some of which you can buy here or on my website. I also have a Ravelry group where people can share pictures of my designs, I would love for you to join! You can connect with me on Twitter, see what inspires me on Pinterest, and follow my blog at
