Free Pattern: Slouchy Ridges Hat


It is finished! It, being me. I'm finished compiling data from my awesome testers, sifting through photos of my sorry mug, tweaking pixels on the PDF... and now, I present my first pattern of 2011.


Pattern Name: Slouchy Ridges Hat
Difficulty: Easy
Yardage: 200 yards
Techniques: Knitting in the round, Working stripes (if you want a multicolored hat), and another technique explained in the pattern.

My goal this year is to publish 11 patterns. The ones I self-publish will be free all year long, and on January first of 2012 they'll go up for sale, so download this one while you can!


What I like about this hat is that it's stockinette stitch in the round, making it a good zone-out project, but every so often there's the pick-up round, where you have to pay attention.  It's hard to find knitting projects that have that duality.


Anyway, I hope you like it, too! You can download your own free copy here: download now


  1. I love it! Thanks for the free pattern, and I like the idea of offering it free for the year and then selling it. Great job!

  2. Very cool! Love the swirly stripes. And good luck with your goal of 11 self published patterns! That's such a fun idea. Can't wait to see what else you come up with.

  3. THANK you so much for the free pattern. LOVE the look


Hey, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! :) I really appreciate it!
