I made a pattern and you should buy it

Recently i designed a hat, a knitted hat to wear on my head. Or rather I designed one for my daughter, that she could wear on her head.

Popcorn hat
Goofy delightful hat for many winters to come

I’d bought a skein of yarn, that made no sense apart from that it looked fun and had the same name as my daughter. Thats why i bought it, I was just meant to be something for her. With one skein of yarn of this thickness, you can make a hat, possibly a cowl, maybe even a pair of mittens. But this was meant to be worn on top of her head.

So we looked at the yarn, and decided it needed to be a big hat, with a wide brim and popcorn. You obviously need to wear this hat when you go to the movies in the winter (or summer, if you live in Norway or Alaska).

I just made the hat, no pattern, just ideas, and it worked. As you do, I posted a photo on Instagram, and someone fairly known in the Norwegian world of knitting and yarn, asked for a pattern. So obviously I bought another bloody expensive skein of hand dyed yarn, made the pattern whilst I knitted another hat, and gave the pattern to her!

Then the thought occurred to me, I could publish the design and make some money, maybe even enough to cover the cost of the yarn. That is my goal here. To cover the cost.

  4. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now
    destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!
