Could anyone find me a free pattern to download for my 92 year old mum to knit? She wants to make a "little hat" for great granddaughter being born by cs on Monday. It needs to be VERY easy, no cable patterns or such and knitted on two needles, not in the round which I think maybe means on a circular needle? You can tell I'm not a knitter can't you!
I've googled for a few but they all seem either with American instructions - mum can only do basic plain & purl or something she calls moss stitch? - or way too complicated. Can you come up with anything please?
Hi. If you go to Ravelry, and look up the newborn garter stitch hat by Brigitte Pieke, that is a very very easy project. As long as your mum knows how to decrease she won't have a problem, i made one a few weeks ago, it was the first time I made a hat and was really simple, and cute!
She has instructions for knitting flat / two needles. It just needs sewing up once its done.
Sorry, not ignoring people - just busy today. Now have three patterns printed out for mum and three colours of wool (cream, white and a lovely delicate pink fleck). Will be taking them to mum tomorrow - new great granddaughter will be born on Monday - she will get cracking and should have a little hat for posting soon after. Job done
