Hey, guys! I’ve got exciting news!
Who’s got two thumbs and is one of Knit Picks’ newest pattern designers?
Totally exciting, right? As of Monday morning, my first official Knit Picks pattern went up, and, I have to say, it’s one that I’m pretty proud of. (I’m actually wearing the prototype as I write this. But that has more to do with the fact that my house is very cold, and less to do with how proud I am.)
This design has been bouncing around in my head for over a year and was finalized months ago. I’ve been dying to share it with you, and now I can! Woo hoo!
Also, look: they even took professional photos with a real-life model (instead of me taking weird-angled shots with my tiny point-and-click camera that eats its battery after five pictures).
And, if you want to read the blurb from the website:
“The Evergreen Cap is an exceptionally cozy unisex hat, perfect for everyone on your Christmas list. A richly cabled beanie knit in thick Wool of the Andes Superwash, this hat keeps out even the coldest winter wind. Inspired by the tall cedar trees of the Pacific Northwest, wide cables climb smoothly from the cap’s brim up to the crown. Carefully arranged decreases allow the cables to continue uninterrupted to the very top of the hat.The Evergreen Cap is a quick and lovely accessory for men and women.”
And, the best part? It’s free, and just in time for last-minute Christmas knitting!

It just finished the evergreen and it is beautiful!! I haven’t knitted very long and think I may have missed the slip slip stitch (on the pattern is is the same graph emblem as the knit two together?). It turned out but just wondered. Thank you for sharing!!
Oh! That’s so nice of you to say! I’m glad you enjoyed the pattern. (And, I’d love to see your finished hat, if you wanted to share a photo!)
Aah! You’re right! The legend is wrong… I tell you, it doesn’t matter how many times I look over a pattern, I always miss something. Ssk or K2tog doesn’t make a big difference on this hat, but I’ll let the Knit Picks folks know about the mistake. Thanks for pointing it out!
All the best 😀
Thank you for the pattern. And it got worn before i could block it! Sent from my iPhone
Haha! Awesome! I have a couple things like that. I knit up a cowl on the airplane out to Chicago, and just popped it on when I got off the plane.
Congratulations!!!! So exciting!!!
And it’s beautiful! Of course I’m downloading it and can’t wait to try it!
Thanks! I can’t wait to see your hat!
