I have been working on making and writing my own patterns for a while now. It's been a dream to have a pattern shop of my own in the event I could not knit or crochet anymore. I know, a sad thought, but arthritis does happen and so do accidents!
Over the past year I have been very slowly developing some cute designs that are definitely in my style of work and that I know you will love! One of the very first patterns I made up was this Stegosaurus Hat. The idea for it obviously came from roaming around looking at dinosaurs as well as the two colors of yarn that were lying in my stash. I thought, "Why not make something super cute and fun for kids (and adults) to wear while keeping themselves warm?" So, the Stegosaurus hat was born.
I have had most of the pattern lying in wait for a long time. It wasn't until now that I felt I was ready to list it in my Ravelry pattern shop. It took me a while to get past the idea of thinking, "Is it really ready?" I mean, come on, writing a pattern takes time and you're always re-reading it to make sure it makes sense. I just needed to let go and send it into the virtual world to decide.
Well, it was! I am so glad I posted it, too. Ravelry immediately gave it some love and I hope you will as well. The hat is super cute and a lot of fun for all those dinosaur lovers! Right now I only have the pattern for Child (ages 1-12) listed, but the adult one is coming soon! Why not head over to my pattern shop and purchase the pattern for yourself? I know you won't regret it. ^_^
