I Heart You Hat


A free Knitting Pattern



Somehow it is already February, and Valentine's Day is right around the corner. I have a cute little hat to share with you today. It works the left and right twists to form layered hearts. I love the texture of this hat. The ribbing really adds some stretch and dimension to the design. It has been a while since I have shared a twisted stitch pattern. I'm so glad to have another one to share.

Today marks the day of  Designs by Diligence being around for 8 years. This coming year I'm going to hit 1,000,000 page views. Never would I have thought my little blog would hit that milestone. From a girl that barely passed typing class to a girl that has a blog that provides steady extra income is just amazing. Thank for coming to take a look and supporting my creativity.
