Free Knitted Fisherman’s Rib Slouchy Hat Pattern

Not every knitted item turns out the way you plan.

This hat, for example, is not at all what I was expecting.

My niece, Shelby, wanted a matching hat set for her and her baby, Bailey, and so I set to work learning fisherman’s rib and began knitting away!

I’d never worked fisherman’s rib but thought, hey, how hard can it be? I’ll just whip out my own pattern. Ha! Probably not a great idea when you’re not familiar with a stitch.

I kept thinking, ‘Is this going to be too big? It should fit. It seems kinda big. It’s definitely pretty big. No. […]

A Lovely Knitted Wrap Indeed

Years ago, when I was first learning to knit, I made this lovely wrap for my mom.

It’s a simple and elegant knitting pattern and wonderful as a Mother’s Day gift.

It was easy and comforting to make and it just flowed from my fingers.

I was in a distraught/hopeless/self-loathing/regretful rough patch of my life emotionally and every stitch was just a tiny, soothing act of love.

She adored it, of course.

I’ve long forgotten the yarn I used. It was pre-Expression Fiber Arts days so isn’t any of my mine but was a soft and lumpy bumpy pink, green, white hand-dyed wool. Lovely stuff.

How to Sew A Rainbow Apron

1. I bought a new sewing machine! It’s the Brother CS6000i. After our move, I needed something basic to sew with and researched a great sewing/quilting machine and voila. This little beauty is fantastic and highly recommended, so get yourself one if you need a machine. Got mine on Amazon.

2. I am wild about rainbow things and randomly bought a pack of batik fabrics from Wal-Mart. Gasp! Stunning, I know.

3. What to make, what to make?

4. An apron!

Geez Louise Hat Finished Object – Free Crochet Hat Pattern

Here’s some lovely crochet inspiration for you today.

My friend, Emily, crocheted this adorable hat using one skein of our Superwash Merino Wool Silk Pearlescent Worsted Weight yarn (limited edition colorway: Mystery Book Club).

Is it not the cutest! Me thinks, yes. She also dyed the first batch of this colorway, btw. Gorgeous. I gasped when I saw how this yarn base took the dyes. Stunn.ING.

The pattern is not mine, of course, but can be found for free here.

I plopped it on for a quick photoshoot so you could see:
