My First Knitting Pattern!

As most of you probably know (I think), I do a lot of knitting and crocheting.  Last year I made my first venture into crochet design with the ponies, and this summer I made my first knit design.  In all my years of knitting and crocheting, I honestly thought I would never get into design work, but I really love it.  It’s kind of like with writing where I read tons as a kid and so of course I wanted to make my own stories.  And now I knit and crochet tons of stuff, too, and eventually there’s that drive to create something.

I was inspired to make this when I saw a hat with the NYC skyline on it.  It’s supposed to be one of the most recognizable skylines in the world, and I thought, “Maybe, but the Seattle skyline is MORE recognizable.”  (Though I admit I may be a bit biased…)  So I sat down with a piece of graph paper and a Google image search on the Seattle skyline and got to work.

Rainy Day Seattle Hat:

Reminiscent of a cool, rainy morning in the Northwest, this beanie-style hat has everything you need to show off your love for the Emerald City. The hazelnut and cream ribbing represents warming up with a hot mocha on a cold day, while the Seattle skyline rises against a typical drizzly gray backdrop. (The dark green yarn carried in the back shows through the gray a little, creating the perfect rainy look.) Washington apples form a ring above the city, alternating between solid green and heart-shaped outlines, and snow-covered evergreens top off the ensemble.
