PATTERN DETAILS

I knit a lot of hats for charities which are looking for a hat that will really keep the ears warm. I have tried a lot of patterns but just hadn't found one that met this criteria AND was easy to memorize but could be varied for interest and best use of scrap yarn. Oh, and I also didn't want to have to keep track of how many stitches to cast on for different sizes. Asking a lot, wasn't I? This stretchy hat knits up quickly. It fits a wide range of sizes from kindergarteners to adults. The longer length and wide turned-back garter stitch cuff keeps the ears cozy in even the coldest weather. Leave it plain or add some stripes to use up your scraps. Best of all it is a very simple, easy to remember pattern! So, won't you join me in making some Warm My Ears Hats for your favorite charity? BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, cast on, bind off Knitting in the round GAUGE 4 stitches per inch in stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 20" around by about 8 1/2 " tall with cuff folded up.

Thank you for your patronage! I learned to knit when I was about 6 or 7 years old. It soon became a passion that I have honed over the years by knitting for myself, my husband and our 8 children as well as many other friends and family members. Our first grandchild is drowning in knits! I taught most of our children how to knit and have taught others through my LYS over the past several years. I love sharing my passion with other knitters! My latest projects have often included lace and Norwegian designs that look more difficult than they really are, Honest! I started designing patterns to use in the classes I was teaching. Because of that many of my patterns are for basics. The knitting muse has been taking me to new things lately though! I hope you enjoy seeing what I am doing. Thanks for your interest in my work. Happy knitting! Denise
