Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat was posted in the As Seen in TV and Movies Group and I took it on as a challenge. I am happy with the result and I think it’s pretty close. Regardless it makes for a nice, snug warm hat. It fits both my little head and my husband’s monster head well and looks very masculine when worn by a man and yet interesting if not ̶...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This is just the chart I used for the hat shown. It is 100 stitches and I used worsted weight yarn, size 6 (ribbing) and 8 (body) needles.
Knitting: Pet - Other
When our beloved “son” Ty (of the canine four-legged variety) died, we had him privately cremated. The Humane Society, which does the private cremations, provides a very utilitarian yet nice urn. It even comes with a space and a clear cover for a photo on the top. However, I wanted to adorn it somehow along the sides. At first I thought about gl...

IMPORTANT! I put pattern up on 7/24. On 7/25 I reloaded the .PDF as the chart key was incorrect. It has now been corrected, so please download again if you downloaded prior to July 25. Thanks!

Knitting: Animal Toy
I made this hedgehog up on the fly the weekend my newly knitting ten year old nephew Daniel stayed with me. He wanted to be able to knit more, so I told him I would write up a pattern for it and put it up on Ravelry for him.

My neighbor and friend Diana LOVES dragonflies. Now that I have learned to do two-handed stranded knitting, I am able to make her a hat with a band of dragonflies around it. I am sooooo excited. I am happy to share the chart I designed with anyone else who loves dragonflies or has a friend who does. I chose purple and green because they are her ...

My friend Bev was bemoaning not having a clue as to what to get her husband Colin for his birthday in September. She refuses to buy him more t-shirts and they are not extravagant gift spenders in the best of economic times. So, I valiantly offered to knit Colin a hat for her to gift him with.

Just a random monster truck generated chart for a fellow Raveler.
Knitting: Throw
Very basic “recipe” for throw with some comforting AA phrases duplicate stitched on the squares. Done in squares and sewn together so can be worked on in small chunks without being distracting in public places! :)

Important! In order to succesfully use this conversion pattern, you will need to purchase Debi Birkin’s Freddy Meerkat Ferret pattern, which is available here on Ravelry or at debibirkin.com.
Knitting: Billed Hat
I was inspired by a poster’s request for an Imperial Officer hat pattern and decided to design one. It took me a few tries to work it to my satisfaction, but I am very pleased.
Knitting: Earflap Hat
My friend Andrea’s nephew wanted a panda hat with earflaps. He is 17 and I figure if he is confident enough to wear one, the least I could do was make one!
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This was inspired by my two nieces who love the song “I Just Wanna Be a Sheep -- Baa!” OK, so their dad will be graduating seminary in a few weeks and grandpa is a retired pastor…what can I say :)!
Knitting: Coat / Jacket, Not a pattern
This “recipe” is suggestive only of a possible way to replicate the coat so popular during the 2010 Olympic games that the girls presenting the medals wore. I have not knit it, so I have no idea if it works, but if you are adventurous and want some kind of starting place, feel free to take a look and spark the designer in you!
Knitting: Stocking
This pattern came from a request of another Raveler for a way to knit the hat her son wanted and of which he showed her a picture. I wrote a pattern based on guesswork and the picture and sent it to her and ….lo and behold! It worked!!! So, with some tweaks from her, I have put the pattern up for anyone else with a desire to knit this hat :).
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat pattern uses a variety of stitches and techniques throughout which makes it a great beginner project for someone who wants to try something new. It also keeps the project interesting and it goes super quick!
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A hat I made for myself one year in support of the wonderful country I live in …obviously that year was 2010.
