My First Free Pattern!

Working in a yarn shop I have the lovely pleasure of meeting fascinating and inspiring knitters daily. The other day two ladies came into the shop, an elderly lady and her middle-aged daughter. They were so lovely and kind, not to mention thrilled to be surrounded by wool. They both wore hand knitted hats, knitted by the daughter. The elderly lady’s hat was so adorable I had to enquire. The daughter had improvised it and we discussed how she did it. I asked if I could reproduce it and make the pattern available online – she was delighted! I cast on on the bus ride home!  And so, here is Grantham.

This hat has warm earflaps and a cute little knot at the crest.  It was so much fun to make!

    The hat is really cute. But I like the story even better.
