Chunky Harvest Hats ~ free pattern!

Hi, Knitters,
I hope you are having a great Thanksgiving weekend, or a great weekend in general if you don't celebrate. We are having so much relaxing family time together and that is always a good thing although there has been far too much eating. We'll get back on track today with that!

I have a little present for you today. I released my first free blog pattern on the Barrett Wool Co. Journal. That is my blog over on my new website if you don't know yet. I wanted to start with a free pattern that is a real go-to pattern that everyone needs at one time or another so I thought of the Chunky Harvest Hats. After knitting a couple of these hats you will have it memorized.

The pattern has 6 sizes, to fit from newborn all the way to adult sized heads. I held two strands of the Barrett Wool Co. Home Worsted Weight together throughout the hat to make the fabric extra-squishy and also so it would work up incredibly fast. These hats are addicting for sure. The hats are knit at 3 stitches per inch on US size 10.5 needles. I'm telling you in an hour or two you will have a finished hat.

These make the perfect gift! And it's a great way to try out my new yarn if you're interested.

I hope you enjoy knitting your Chunky Harvest Hats. 

Keep me posted if you do!

The holiday season has really snuck up on me this year in a way like I can't remember before. Maybe it has to do with the extremely warm weather. Although, it is finally getting colder. I think we are getting our tree at some point this weekend. How about you? 

I'll be back soon with more.
