Pay What Works: Inspired by the models of other designers that I trust and respect, I’m now offering a “Pay What Works” model. I like this model because it accurately reflects the pride that I take in all of my designs and the effort that I put into them, while staying true to my heart: that knitting should be accessible to everyone, no matter what their current life situation.

Each of these codes will adjust the cost of the pattern to the final cost listed below (the cost listed is what you pay, not the discount amount).

Reiko is made up of various textures including garter stitch, a broken rib, and cables to make up a comfy beanie. The garter brim features some simple wrap and turn style short rows for a little added fun. Happy knitting!
