One week to go…and I think I am nearly there…most of my presents have been brought and wrapped, all gift knits completed and I am faced with a lovely quiet weekend – which feels a bit strange being the week before Christmas, I don’t think I have ever been this organised!
I don’t know about you but I am quite looking forward to some time off work this Christmas and indulging in a spot of selfish knitting….I have a long wish list of projects that I would love to get my teeth stuck into, a C&G module to complete, some design ideas to play with and some WIP’s that need to finally come off the needles!
If anyone is after a quick and fun knit over Christmas I am pleased to be able to post up my ‘Alonni Hat‘ pattern, available as a free Ravelry download 🙂
A close fitted unisex beanie, the Aloni Hat is worked in the round and made up of 5 repeats of a cable and zig-zag rib and eyelet pattern.
You may remember that quite a few weeks ago I posted some pics from our honeymoon in Greece, and since then I have been working on some pattern ideas. I knew I wanted to design a hat and found there were 2 images in particular that I kept coming back to. A sea urchin and a jetty. And so the Alonni Hat was born…a inspired by the summer for the winter!
The finished hat.
Thanks for stopping by, and if I don’t get chance to post again before the 25th I would like to wish everyone reading a very Merry Christmas and Happy 2014!
