Purchase was easy. Download was easy and prompt. However, the pattern seems to be incorrect from the beginning. The first step is to use 32" round needles to knit the 80 stitches in the round. My local craft store did not have needles of that length, so I purchased 29" needles instead. The 29" needles are too long. My gauge is perfect. I checked. Back to the craft store, for 24" round needles, which are still just a little too long. This is a problem for 2 reasons: 1) I will have to make a 3rd trip to the store, expending time and money for needles in a pattern I hope will work. 2) From the beginning, this makes me question how many other errors are in the pattern.

Bought this pattern to knit the hat for my son. The email with the pattern attached arrived straight away. My son was thrilled with the hat, which he wore to school for 'Children in Need ' day. All his friends and teachers equally thought the hat was' very cool'. I thoroughly enjoyed knitting the hat, the pattern was very easy to follow, which was a triumph as I had never knitted on the round and with more than one colour before. Many thanks for a fab pattern.
I just cant resist a fiber challenge
I've been sewing since age 5 with my mother. We bonded over the years in the fabric stores. I've sewn everything from Winter coats to Lingerie. Never having a sewing class, I've just had an insatiable need to "Make Something", with a stubbornness to "figure it out myself". I've tried it all and love it all; embroidering, cross stitch needlepoint, macrame, punch rugs, hook rugs, my own invention rugs, weaving, bead weaving, spinning, croquet and knitting.
I dove into knitting 16 years ago when my father was diagnosed with cancer. My husband, daughter and I, lived 7 hours away and made many trips to see him. Knitting was the best, portable and comforting thing I could do in the car. Teaching myself was an enjoyable challenge, that diverted my worries, but gave me plenty of time to pray. When he died 5 years later, I had gained a lot of experience and a growing stash.
One day a friend at work was talking about all the things I've made for her grandchildren. Then she asked, "Can you make me a monkey hat, I'd be happy to pay you for it." When I brought it in, the orders started flying. What about a Giraffe, a Frog, a Penguin... and the list continues.
Being a Mom and working full time, slows me down from conquering all these challenges. But don't worry, I love a knitting challenge, just wait and see them all in my store. As long as people request them, I'll be working on them along with the other fiber crafts I can't stop doing.
