Traveller’s Hat Pattern and Video

The Traveller’s Hat is a very easy beginner knit pattern if starting with the long-tail cast on, or is perhaps an advanced beginner or intermediate project if using the circular tubular cast on, which I recommend.

But once you get the hang of it, it’s fun to knit andContinue reading “Snowdrift Infinity Cowl Pattern”
