  5. How can I get a copy of this patterns – I especially would like the one with the Bow. Please let me know the process.

    • To purchase the pattern, you can go to my pattern store here. I don’t have the bow pattern as one of the examples, but the way the patterns are, you can substitute any pattern for the one written. So you can order any of those patterns and I can send you the colorwork chart I used for the bow for you to substitute.

      Happy holidays!

    • The String version of the pattern is nearly the same, the biggest difference was the yarn I used (their store brand cashmere). The other difference is that the gauge is slightly smaller (String version is 5 st/in, regular is 4). If you still prefer this version, let me know and I’ll set up a Paypal link for you

  7. These are some really fashion looking knitted hats. My family has made a few knitted caps but they didn’t have the ear sides. I like the ear sides.

  8. Hi,
    can you please confirm that the hats are reversible?
    I would like to make sure I understand the “double knitting” part right.


  9. Thank you so much. I am excited to get started on learning double knitting.
    Working on hats for seven grandchildren, which include triplets, twins and
    another boy and girl.

  10. I selected “Oh, Canada!” and paid using PayPal, but was then routed to the first page of your blog. No download link! Help!
