butterfly hat

July 26, 2018


I have done it! I have put a pattern onto Ravelry. 


I haven't managed to get a link onto this site yet or even get it published onto Love Knitting, but I have taken the plunge.


It is quite a basic beret pattern, and I was worried that as a pattern it was not very exciting. This pattern was originally developed for a magazine with limited space. The basic beret pattern is quite straightforward, but towards the crown, the decreases are placed to avoid the motif. I think it was this that worried the commissioning editor. If written in pattern copy it would have taken a lot of valuable pattern lines.  The alternative was to have no motif towards the centre of the crown which would have been perfectly acceptable  – especially as I chose to put a pompom on the finished beret.



Anyway, to add value to the pattern I have included: a chart of the sample project; a chart of the sample project you can colour yourself;  a blank beret chart; some alternative butterfly motifs. The book I get the most emails about is 1000 Great Knitting Motifs, so I hope will make the pattern more appealing.











My To-do list:

• Make another sample using yarn oddments for the background.
