NEEDLES & KNITS
Here are two hat patterns that we thought you might enjoy knitting for yourself, family,and friends. With all this cold weather we have been having a hat or two will come in handy!
Ribbed Hat - Free Pattern
Tove just knit these ribbed grey cashmere hats to send to her family in Norway. When we saw them, we asked her to write the pattern so we could share it with you. You can knit one in an evening and have it ready in no time to wear.
Tove knit one hat in K2P2 and the other in K1 P1. You could use two colours and knit it in stripes. Have fun with it and let your creativity loose!
Drop by the store and have a look at some of the alpacas and mini alpacas, cashmere and worsted yarn which all knit up so beautifully.
Each hat takes about 2 balls depending on the yardage and gauge, The staff will be happy to help you figure out how much yarn you need to knit one of these hats. The pattern can be adapted to pretty much any yarn you choose to knit with.
Easy Beanie Hat - Free Pattern
Tove knit these easy beanie hats a long, long time ago. They are knit on very large double pointed needles (12mm) and with 3 strands of yarn and knit up very, very quickly. The hats are nice and thick and will be nice and warm too. We asked her to figure out the pattern and write it down so we can share it with you. So she did and here it is.
Let's inspire together, by sending pictures of your finished hats so we can put them in the
Needles and Knits Gallery.

This month's blog is another free pattern - the Newsboy Hat! Tove created the Newsboy Hat pattern to knit for her grandson, Sebastian. The Newsboy Hat is knit using Rowan Pure Wool Worsted and requires only two 100g balls. Tove chose Moonstone 112 and Electric 143. Rowan Pure Wool Worsted is 100% superwash wool ranging from soft neutrals to mid-tone brights and deep darks. It comes in 56 shades so you will be able to find whatever colour combination you are looking for. Here are some pictures of the hat taken from a few different views.
We can't wait to see a picture of Sebastian wearing his new hat. We'll share it with you as well! Happy knitting to all you faithful customers of Needles & Knits. Please send pictures of your Newsboy Hat as we will post them in our Gallery.
