I have been knitting this same hat pattern over and over and over. It’s my newest design that will be released next month! I really enjoy offering patterns that give the knitter options, and lots of value for the purchase price. Featheround has instructions to create either a beanie or a tam style hat in four sizes–baby (child, sm adult, lg adult). I’ve just opened up signups for test knitters in my Ravelry group–I’m especially looking for anyone interested in knitting the baby and child sizes.
As for reading, I’ve just gotten my copy of The Magic of Shetland Lace Knitting: Stitches, Techniques, and Projects for Lighter-than-Air Shawls & More and am enjoying it immensely! I have some pretty major plans for the new year that involve lace, so this is an excellent resource!
