My first published pattern!

What a great way to kick off the new year - with my first published pattern!
Publishing patterns and selling some of my handy work is one of my main goals for this year. This hat in particular I actually made a year ago! I think it's about time I get my stuff together and get this pattern out in the world!

Since it is my first pattern it is available for free. In the future I will be publishing patterns for sale as well. So stay tuned for more!

The Montana Hat!! 

This hat was inspired during a road trip to Montana in Jan 2013. I needed a beanie; it needed to be simple, but not plain stockinette, and something I could make while being a passenger for a couple of days. This hat turned out perfect, and kept my noggin plenty warm while playing in the snow!

Gauge: 17 sts x 27 rnds = 4” in stockinette

Measures 16” circumference, unstretched. Can easily be made larger or smaller by changing the size of the stockinette section. I recommend changing stitch count in multiples of 4, to maintain the 2x2 ribbing for the brim.

  • 1 skein (approximately 200 yards) worsted weight wool. Pictured in Malabrigo Merino Worsted in the Glazed Carrots colorway.
  • Size US9 needle for preferred method of working in the round.
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
This pattern has both written and charted directions. For ease of printing, all written directions are on page 2, and all charted directions are on page 3, so you can print only the page you prefer to use!
