Falling Leaves

Just in time for fall!! I just love fall, it is my absolute favorite season. I really wish I lived somewhere where I could really dive into some beautiful leaf piles and see all the colors change, the desert, unfortunately, does not provide that for me. I don't let that hold me back from creating a fall atmosphere in my home, though-apple crisp, fall decorations, and fall wardrobe (even in the heat, I still embrace a fall wardrobe...) I am super excited to add a new pattern for free. This pattern is a first of many things for me to have written: first infinity scarf/cowl pattern, first lacework pattern, and first charted pattern. This infinity scarf/cowl is so versatile and fun to knit. The leafy lace pattern makes it a beautiful fall addition. Available in chart and written form. Measurements: 8 inches wide, 44 inches long (circumference).

I hope you enjoy this pattern and really enjoy fall!!   Download Now

Shannon's Slouchy Hat

In honor of finally finishing school and passing my nursing boards, I have a new pattern available for FREE!!!!

My sister is a really fun, hip, cool girl. She loves to snowboard and asked me to make up a funky, fresh pattern for her to wear on the slopes. This slouchy hat is a fun, quick project. The intermittent purl stitches throughout add a cool, subtle texture to the hat.

Both medium worsted or dk weight yarns would be great for this project, just make sure that your gauge matches and you should be fine (gauge=9 stitches and 12 rows = 2 inches in stockinette stitch with size 7 needles). I hope you all enjoy it. Please feel free to let me know if you find any mistakes as it has only been tested by myself at this time.

You can download a pdf copy of the pattern HERE for free.
