Flurries Hat

Flurries Hat Free Knitting Pattern

FREE hat knitting pattern. "Flurries" by Margo Snyder margoknits.com

Well that white Christmas I was dreaming about finally came… Mid January. I have to say I think the snow is really pretty, and since I haven’t seen it in two years, I don’t mind it a bit. Today’s knitting pattern is a simple one with a lot of personality. And I rightly named it the “Flurries Hat” because the white stitches remind me of the flurries outside of my window right now.

Winter Seeds : Free Seed Stitch Infinity Scarf Knitting Pattern

Happy September! Who’s ready for fall yet? I’ll admit, after a year in the Caribbean, I’m excited to break out my jeans, boots, and of course, my yarn! I knitted this infinity scarf in Belize, awaiting the day when I’d actually be able to wear it. Unfortunately, that day has not come as it is 95 degrees here in Ohio. I’m in no rush to say goodbye to the sun, but I am ready to say hello to my cowls!

This is a really simple pattern, and great for beginners. What I love most about my pattern is the yarn. The mint green and gray colorway from Nerd Girl Yarns was so amazing I bought 5 skeins so…. matching hat to come? I think so. Ok, onto the knitting!

 

Please note: This pattern is available to view on the blog for free, if you would like a printable version, it is available for purchase in my Ravelry shop.
