Pattern release: Instincts

Instincts is an expression of authentic emotions conveyed by colors that are outside the scope of aesthetically coordinated hues. This fair-isle hat is simple, yet makes a bold statement.  Be bold in your color choices.

Pattern is available via my new website:

Started 8/30/13 at midnight. Needless to say it was riddled with errors and I had to pull it out multiple times. I left it alone.

9/5/13: I returned to the square. Ripped out once because somehow the numbers were off working from the bottom up. I decided to work top – down from right to left. Stitches were matching up and everything was looking great until I realized the word “ain’t” was backwards. RIPPED! No more starting over tonight. Maybe tomorrow or something.


I think because my mind is occupied I need to be working on something simpler then return. I’m thinking about a steek. Flat fair isle is not fun. Boooooo!!! :-\
