In the Blink of an Eye....

One of my goals for the weekend was to create this hat. A friend asked me to come up with a pattern for a garter stitch hat. It was supposed to fit an adult sized head. My first attempt became a toddler or child-sized hat. It was a very quick knit, maybe less than four hours from start to finish. The resulting pattern is here. It's a PDF file, so you should be able to just right-click on it and save it if you like. I may keep working at it, and add a size for adults, but for now I wanted to share it, in case anyone is looking for a quick gift idea.

I'm only learning the ins and outs of blogging, so I'm not sure how to get that file to open here in the blog. If you have any problems with it, please let me know.

Finally, Rollie says "Don't look now, but I think I'm being watched..."


  1. What a darling hat! I love it - but I also love those gnomes - where did you get them?

  2. I have been looking all over the place for "gnomes" not "trolls', not "dwarves". There are differences. I finally found these at, of all places, Target!

  3. Love the hat! I need to start knitting another one for my 5-yr-old granddaughter and I think your pattern would be great for her. I read some of your older posts and couldn't believe your yardsale knitting yarn tin - I have one exactly like it that I found at an antique store, but not, alas, for as great a price as yours!

  4. Oh Anne I love the knomes as did my grandson Andrew. We have found a few at Wal-Mart to put on his grave. Very talented knitting I must say. Love your new hairdo.
