Introducing Snow Time Hat.. and a good cause.. October 7, 2012

Although it’s a couple months late, but I would like to introduce my Snow Time Hat Design that is currently featured in the Interweave holiday gifts 2012 issue. And this will be my last magazine publication this year and may be next year. Not that I am no longer knitting or designing, the truth is that I simply don’t have enough time due to my family commitment and work situation this year.

The Snow Time Hat is worked in a round without any shaping on the top. The top is enclosed using grafting technique to give a seamless look. The pom pom detail is optional. And the snow time hat is best to work using fine weight yarn.

The pattern offers 3 sizes, and the finished Size is approximately 12¾ (14½, 16½)” circumference and 6½ (7, 7¼)” tall. The Size small will fit an infant from 0-6 months.

Recently, I have contacted by someone from Austrian Knitting Addicts group in Ravelry that would like to get permission from me to use my designs for one of their initiative. My Snow Time Hat design is one of pattern that they would love to use. Some of the knitters from the group are currently organising charity knitting for the Austrian Childhood Cancer Organization. Some of the projects will directly be given via the parents’ initiative to the little patients at the children’s oncological station at St. Anna hospital in Vienna; then what remains will be sold at the Christmas market in the hospital. I was actually happy that they contacted me and interested in my designs. I have requested to have some pictures taken so that I can share in my blog about this wonderful project. So stay tune for more information about this charity event.
