I have always wanted to make an ear flap hat, and liked the cable pattern on the flaps. With Valentine's Day coming up I thought about cables opening up into a heart shape and when a friend asked me to make a hat for her grand daughter, I decided to come up with a design for a hat with cables, bobbles, and hearts. It is knit with a super bulky yarn on size 13 needles, so you can finish it in one evening or maybe two, and for less than $3 with the Weekly Ad coupon from Michael's. Charisma is my favorite yarn right now, it is so soft and so affordable! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cables bobbles Increases English cast on knit together (video link provided) cables without cable needle (video link provided) GAUGE 11 sts and 16 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS hat fits most 20" - 23" head size

Supplies Needed

  • 1 skein Loops and Threads Charisma
  • Lion Brand Eyelash yarn (a few yards)
  • size 13 US circular needles 16" long

I have always loved to knit and crochet and to make my own presents for friends and family, but I have mostly been a seasonal knitter…Christmas presents and winter birthdays. I can knit really fast too. I learned knitting and crocheting in second grade and have loved it ever since. I love color and love to design, having worked in architecture for a long time. My granddaughter also helps me with advice on what is in style especially for teens, so I try to translate that into my designs. I enjoy working with bulky yarns, they add so much texture to an accessory. The patterns I write also use mostly bulky yarns, so the project works up fast. I design easy accessories that anyone can afford to make, hopefully in one evening. My patterns focus on beginner knitters and using affordable yarns. I think it is a shame that knitting (and sewing) have become a rich person's hobby, so that most aren't even interested in learning the craft, because they can't afford to buy the materials.
