A little crafty teaser

I have managed to finally sort, get tech edited, re-sort, re-knit, re-photograph, gauge swatch etc etc!!!!! A load of hat patterns!!!!! Need to do a final go through and resend to the wonderful tech editor….. but here are some teasers!!!

Sooooo early in the New Year there will be a raft of pattern ready for release into the wild and I shall be looking for test knitters!!!!

So if the teasers pique your interest and you would like to be one of my test knitters for the hat patterns head over to the Ravelry group early in the New Year for a chance to sign up for a test knit spot and free copies of the patterns!!!

All are quick and easy knits!!!!
