Hazelwood Hat

Tuesday, October 9, 2018

Oh, my poor neglected blog! I’ve managed to finish a few small projects since January - including a new baby cardigan pattern - and I truly do plan to catch up in the next few posts. In the meantime, here’s free slouchy hat pattern as a token of my guilt gratitude. I’d hoped to share this pattern on Canadian Thanksgiving but once the shorter hat was finished I was unhappy with the poor contrast/visibility of the colourwork (sound familiar? Ugh, I still really need to work on my hues and values). But honestly, it’s just a free little hat pattern, a small thank you to you lovely fellow knitters, so why stress about it? And if you’d like to give back, please consider making a small donation to your local food bank, soup kitchen or women’s shelter. Thank you!

Ouf, je crois que 8 mois sans billets de blogue… c’est un nouveau record. Pourtant,  j’ai bien réussi à compléter quelques petits projets depuis janvier! Je compte me rattrapper dans quelques semaines mais en attendant, voici un petit patron gratuit en guise de remerciement pour patience. En fait, j’aurais voulu le partager lors de l’Action de grâce, mais encore une fois j’ai été déçu de la faible visibilité de la tuque aux tons gris. C’est hallucinant comment j’arrive à constamment ruiner les fair isle avec mes choix de couleur! Mais en fin de compte, pourquoi stresser pour un tout petit patron gratuit? Alors le voici, en anglais. Si quelqu’un veut s’aventurer à le traduire en français je serais prenante!
