Hadley Hat

The latest hat pattern to make it's way off my needles is one I'm more than excited to share. It was such fun to knit, quick both onto and off the needles, and comes with infinite possibilities. Simply stated, I am in love with this pattern ... and not ashamed to admit it! Stripes. It's got to be the stripes. I have a never-ending love for stripes, and so being able to make a super simple striped hat stole my heart.

The original version of this hat swung its way halfway around the world to Denmark, to the wife of a dear friend I've known since he was 15 (and now that he's a father of two, I can't believe it's been this long!) and I didn't yet know how to knit. After I knit it and held onto it for a week or two, I kept coming back to it, thinking about how I could knit it again and again. Use up scraps, buy some new yarn in two colors you love; pair two neutrals like I have, put a neutral with a pop of color or go super daring and just use brights - y…

Invisible Children Hat

This hat pattern has been named by Courtney of Be More With Less, in honor of the amazing organization Invisible Children! Every day in Uganda, children are kidnapped and forced to fight as soldiers in a war they do not believe in. It is estimated that more than 90% of the LRA’s troops were/are abducted as children.

In an effort to help fight this atrocity, Invisible Children was formed in 2003 when a group of young filmmakers traveled to Africa in search of a story that changed their lives. After sharing the film they created while in Africa, they created Invisible Children, a non-profit that helps bring peace, education, employment and most importantly HOPE to the people of Uganda.

Snug As A Bug Sleep Sack

All babies need a bit of extra snuggle when first born, and sources tell me they should also be wrapped up tight. But what if your babe likes to kick her legs?

By using worsted weight yarn, this pattern will practically knit itself, while still keeping everything soft enough for even the most sensitive of babes! And as an added bonus, you use the entire skein of yarn, so there’s no need to figure out what to do with leftovers!

Materials:
One size 8 circ (16”), one extra size 8 needle. · One skein Vanna’s Choice Baby Yarns · Darning needle

Finished Measurements: 
12” wide at the top (unstretched), 15” long

Gauge:
17 stitches x 22 rows = 4" (10 cm) on size 8 needles

Shine Hat

The Shine Hat can be made as slouchy or as fitted as you want, and while the stitches and construction are simple enough, the overall effect is fun and different. I used Patons wool for the hat pictured above, but I'll be sharing a few more hats made with this pattern soon, and for each I used a different combination of worsted weight wools just to see how versatile this pattern is - I'm happy to report you can substitute in just about any worsted weight wool and as long as you get gauge, you should be good to go!

MATERIALS NEEDED * One skein Patons Classic Wool (210 yards/192 meters per 100 grams) for color A – I used grey heather
* One skein Patons Classic Wool (210 yards/192 meters per 100 grams) for color B – I used natural mix
* One set size US 8 / 5 mm 16” circular needles One set size US 10 / 6 mm 16” circular needles
* One stitch marker
* One darning needle

GAUGE 5 sts x 8 rows = 1" in seed stitch on larger needles\
