PATTERN DETAILS

This pattern is one, that I designed, for those of you who are art yarn lovers, or spinners, who wonder, just what you can do with a small amount of it! This sweet hat features gentle ribbing, for fit, and a sweet, dotted ruffley ribbon, which you can arrange, how you like! The Lucy pattern takes all of the guesswork out of working with your super bulky, art yarn! Art yarn spinners will give you the Wraps per inch, for their yarns, but if you are in doubt, or have some yarn, you aren't sure about, you can simply knit up a swatch, and match the gauge. (Yarn resources include shops from the U.S., Canada, U.K., Italy and Germany) Note: If you have less than 25 yards of art yarn, you can still make this hat! I used about 22 yards.

I have always been inspired by hand knit items, but it seemed beyond reach for me...until I took some knitting classes! From there it became my relaxation and creative outlet! My passion is designing and I love to spin my own yarns, as well! I love to see the finished product on the baby models....
