Featured in my Etsy shop this week are three beanies that I absolutely adore.
Designed and knit by me, these hats come in two sizes, slouchy and regular.
The light brown hat is 9″ in length, the cream is 11′ and blue hat is a little more slouchy at 11.5″. They are sized to fit the average adult head.
The story behind the design….
Last October my aunt asked me to make her a brown slouchy hat. I was really excited to make her a present but, I wanted to design it myself. I already had a few slouchy hat design patterns done but, I wanted something new.
Almost immediately I could see the design in my head. I wanted the stitches to pop, and have an interesting rib for the bottom of the hat. The way the hat turned out is exactly how I pictured it in my head, and to be honest that doesn’t happen very often. Although, the design is technically nameless right now, on my etsy shop, the hats I have for sale knit with this pattern are called “moss stitch beanies.”
The knitting pattern will be released this September.
I love custom orders. If you love the hats but, don’t see your favorite colour or size you can reach out and have one made to order. The best way to request an order is to go to my etsy shop and use the “request custom order” button which is located the left-hand side. You can also e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
