I just finished up this hat that I made sans pattern! I made it in a similar style to the cowl I recently finished and wrote up as a pattern. I was proud to have a hat turn out. It’s easy enough to make a scarf or cowl work without a guide, but hats are a little bit of a different story (with the decreases and all). I’m planning on writing up a pattern for it, so stay tuned! After about 10 years of knitting I’m excited to start expanding my skill-set into pattern writing.
Update Nov. 18: the pattern for the hat (and coordinating cowl) are on Etsy & Ravelry
