The Alward Slouch!
A month or so ago I decided that one way I could be self sufficient would be to become a "professional knitter". You know, like the next Ysolda Teague or something. Which is kind of shooting for the stars. I mean, I am not really sure what I should *do*. So, my first step is putting out some patterns, trying to get some patterns published, etc. Thus I present to you my first self-published pattern, The Alward Slouch!
This slouch is inspired by my friend Karen who lives on Alward Street. She's a knitter, I'm a knitter, and we just have a great chemistry and camaraderie. Recently I was on our epic road trip and not only needed a project to use up my errant skein of Noro Kochoran, but I needed something I could knit while stealing minutes on the road with a newish infant. Karen looks more amazing than I could imagine in this hat and I'm so happy it all came together! The pattern is a bulky-weight quick knit slouch with a ribbed band and a moss stitch body.
You can download the pattern here, or check it out on Ravelry here. Happy Knitting! xo
