When my local crafts store advertised a sale on one of my favorite yarns, Lion Brand's "Wool Ease," I picked up one ball each of several lovely colors with the intention of designing a hat for each color. My "Ribby Lacy Slouchy Hat" is what I designed for the pale rose pink called Blush Heather. The hat is divided into two stitches: a seeded rib for the band and what I call the Ribby Lacy Stitch for the body. If you can knit in the round with circular and double pointed needles, this should be an easy knit for you. Both stitch patterns are 4-stitch repeats and are easily remembered once you've knit a few rounds and established the pattern. I want you to have fun knitting up the project and end up with a lovely completed hat, so as with all my designs, I'm available to answer any questions may have as you create your hat. NOTE: I WOULD LIKE TO THANK MY BUYER NATALIE FOR SENDING ME THE GORGEOUS PHOTOS OF HERSELF IN THE "AUTUMN HAT" SHE MADE. YOU DO JUSTICE TO MY DESIGN, NATALIE AND I'M GRATEFUL FOR YOUR BUSINESS AND YOUR GENEROSITY!

Follow my blog at: I am certified as a Level 1 Master Hand Knitter by The Knitting Guild Association. My grandmother Lena taught me to knit when I was 4 years old and told me that a lifetime of knitting pleasure was her legacy to me. I love to design and knit and enter my work in competitions. I've won numerous awards and ribbons over the years and that's a lot of fun, but the greatest pleasure is the actual creative process. I specialize in Beginner and Intermediate level designs that teach new skills and promote excitement for the art that is Knitting. I think new knitters should have the opportunity to work with a well-written design that reinforces their current skills, teaches them new skills and gets a "WOW, you made that?!!?" response when showing off their completed project.
