The Kate Hat
What came first – the Kate hat or the matching scarf? Honestly, it was the hat… I think! I mentioned in the scarf post that these patterns were actually designed a year ago but releasing them was postponed. Another designer brought out a very similar design after we had completed testing etc. I was nervous about releasing this pattern because I didn’t want to be accused of copying. I have seen how these things can play out in social media and being a new designer that scared me. It turns out I shouldn’t have worried. Our designs are sufficiently different and the designer has been lovely about it.
Isn’t this stitch combo gorgeous!!
I love this stitch combo! It is quite a fun one to work up and works up quickly so I have really enjoyed coming up with different patterns for this. Of course we have several just waiting in the wings to release – a coffee beanie cozy, mug cozy, baby bonnet (from size preemie) and blanket, a gorgeous wrist bag which is perfect for bridesmaids! The list just goes on.
Do you love this stitch combo as much as me?
If you can chain, double crochet, front post double crochet and back post double crochet then you can make just about anything with this stitch combination! If you want to see how easy it is check out our YouTube video tutorial on how to make there scarf pattern. (We also have a left handed version on our channel.)
