A big chunk of sales will be donated to an organization doing good somewhere in the world—click to my designer page (Lee Meredith at the top of this page) to find details about where current sales will be going.

This Choose Your Own Adventure inspired pattern collection offers lots of stitch pattern options (31!), which can be used with any of the items, tons of different ways to knit your piece - you can make hundreds of totally different objects between all the different choices!

The hat is made sideways, the crown shaped with short rows, fitted to any head size (so it can definitely be made kid-sized!) - it can be joined around with a 3-needle bind-off, grafting, a sewn seam, or with buttons.

“Smooth” means the top is meant to be smooth, not pointed - the other hat included in this collection is a pointed hat.

This was a knit-a-long in summer 2015; check out the leethal knitters! group for knit-a-long posts, to see the adventurous items that everyone made!

The ebook includes normal pages plus DIY foldable, bindable, covered print book pages, to make your complete pattern collection into a book like this.

Notes about materials and skills

  • all items work in any weight yarn, but you’ll have more usable options in lighter weights

  • yardage needed will depend on your weight, item, and size - hats should only need 1 standard sized skein of yarn

  • all items are worked flat

  • some items and pattern options are more complex than others, so difficulty ranges adventurous beginner to experienced intermediate - you’ll be able to look at an option and see if it seems doable, choosing the options that look best to you
