Autumn and Autumn Leftovers

That little bag of Autumn that I mentioned in my last post has become two new patterns. As I mentioned on Ravelry, Michael's was having a sale on Lion Brand Thick and Quick, I couldn't resist buying their last ball of Spice.

That lonely ball of Spice became a slouchy hat for me that knit up so quickly I had it done in one sitting. Once it was off the needles Elsie wanted to try it on, which got me to thinking that I could probably use the leftover yarn to make her a miniature version. Well, after crunching a few more numbers and casting on, Elsie had her very own hat. The knitting took no more than a half hour and I was able to use up every last inch of that lovely ball of Spice.


When you purchase the pattern for "Autumn" you will also receive a free copy of the pattern for "Autumn Leftovers", the miniature version sized for babies and toddlers. Here are the details for each...

  1. Your pattern is wonderful and I'll have to remember it. I'm trying to learn slouchy hats, and this would be a great one to learn with. And as a first time visitor to your blog, I have to tell you, I am in envy of your amazing hair! I'm red, too, but It always goes wonky once it gets to my shoulder blades. Will follow your site and add to my blog roll (don't have tons of subsribers, but someday .. . )
