Classic Ribbed Hat Free Knitting Pattern

Classic Ribbed Hat Free Knitting Pattern



 

 First off- I wanted to thank you guys for the great response to my book "Beginner Chunky Knitting Patterns"!!! The paperback version will be released this weekend 😁
    Spring is upon us, but the mornings are still quite chilly here in NY. I wanted a hat that was warm but didn't look too winter-y. I also wanted something timeless so I created this Classic Ribbed Hat free knitting pattern. The simple design really shows off the colors.
    I bought this yarn from Amazon (free shipping with Prime!) and I love it! The self striping colors look so pretty together and it's a good price for natural fiber yarn. I will definitely be purchasing this yarn again for future projects. It comes in a lovely blue colorway so maybe a spring hat for Indigo? 
     I hope you guys like the pattern. Happy Knitting!

Geode Suncatcher DIY

Geode Suncatcher DIY



  

 How pretty are geodes??? I love the shapes and the variations in color! Geode slices are used mostly for jewelry, but I wanted to incorporate them into my home decor. They look so beautiful when the light shines through them, so I decided to make a Geode Suncatcher DIY. Geodes can be pricey but I found a great deal on Amazon. This is an easy project to make and it will look amazing hanging by a sunny window!

Supplies:
Agate slices with pre-drilled holes
Embroidery floss

My First E-Book - Beginner Chunky Knitting Patterns

Beginner Chunky Knitting Patterns by Gina Michele
     I'm SO excited to announce that I just published my first e-book: "Beginner Chunky Knitting Patterns"!!! I've been working on this non stop for the past several weeks and I'm so happy that I finally get to share it with you. I'm bad at keeping (fun) secrets so it was really difficult to not say anything!

      "Beginner Chunky Knitting Patterns" is the first in a series of knitting pattern e-books I'm creating. I also have a knitting pattern paperback book planned for summer release. Woo-hoo!!!

      "Beginner Chunky Knitting Patterns" features 14 original knitting patterns created by me for women, babies and the home. 5 of the patterns are brand new, created especially for the book. I will not be publishing these new patterns on the blog (or anywhere else)!

   
      Best of all, you can get "Beginner Chunky Knitting Patterns" for FREE if you are a member of kindleunlimited. Otherwise, the e-book is for sale on Amazon for a very reasonable price 😊

     I want to thank you guys for all your feedback and support over the past few years! Seriously, I couldn't have done this without you!!!

Bunny Baby Hat Free Knitting Pattern

Bunny Baby Hat Free Knitting Pattern




     We've had a few nice days and it's totally putting me in the mood for all things Spring! My daffodils are even poking up which I view as the unofficial sign that winter is over. I wanted to knit a hat for Indigo that was medium weight and Spring appropriate. The first thing that came to mind was "Bunny!" This Bunny Baby Hat knitting pattern will be perfect for Easter!   
     This Bunny Hat is knit using worsted weight yarn. The ears are knit separately and the eyes and nose are stitch on after the hat is made which makes this an easy project. I crocheted the eyes, but you can use black buttons if you prefer.
     I hope you guys like the pattern- happy knitting!
Materials:
Yarn:  Needles:  and
Also needed:
Pink worsted weight yarn
Black worsted weight yarn
White worsted weight yarn
