When I set out to design the Super-Easy Seed-Stitch Topper, it was because I knew my son London (pictured below) would need a new hat to stay warm this winter. I wanted to knit something really fast that would not require much pattern reading. I decided to use Galway Chunky from Plymouth Yarn, because they have a great kid and adult-friendly color range. You only need 1 ball for the one-color version, or 2 for the two-color version. You’ll have this done in just a few hours. Or if you’re a speedy knitter, maybe just one hour is all you’ll need!
Starting November 26th, we’ll be starting a Knitalong on the Creative Knitting Ravelry Fans Group page, where you can join other like-minded knitters and make this fun hat. I plan to be there to kick things off and answer any questions. In the meantime, download the pattern here, which is free on CreativeKnittingMagazine.com.
The Super-Easy Seed-Stitch Topper is also featured in the new Winter issue of Creative Knitting. I’ve been waiting with baited breath for this issue to finally come to life, because it marks our first bigger issue–128 interior pages and a nice perfect-bound spine. And get this–41 patterns for you to enjoy! Visit CreativeKnittingMagazine.com to preview all the projects in this issue, or you can download the digital issue here.
I hope you’ll join me on the Creative Knitting Fans Page during this exciting Knitalong on Ravelry. If you can’t make it Wednesday, November 28th, you can start at any time. All discussions remain available in the forum for easy future access.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
