As an example, in 1997, I took a trip to Europe to visit several countries. My checked bag, stuffed with 30 days worth of clothing and toiletries, never made it. (I ended up learning a valuable lesson about packing, though.)

Back in 2014, I designed several patterns for I Like Crochet magazine as it launched. This long and cuddly unisex scarf was one of those patterns, but somehow the sample got lost.

Knitting Pattern: Braided Beanie

Free knitting pattern: Braided Beanie in Imperial Yarn Erin by Underground Crafter | A single, braided cable adds visual appeal to this stretchy, unisex beanie. Wear the cable at the center or to the side for different looks.As longtime readers may know, I was terrified of knitting for many years. My grandmother tried to teach me back when I was 9 or so (when she taught me to crochet), but everything I made turned into a trapezoid.

This post contains affiliate links. Yarn for the sample was generously provided by Imperial Yarn.

For over 20 years, I was afraid to try to knit. When I finally picked knitting up again, my main motivation was to learn how to create cables. I have always loved the look of knitted cables.

Free knitting pattern: Braided Beanie in Imperial Yarn Erin by Underground Crafter | A single, braided cable adds visual appeal to this stretchy, unisex beanie. Wear the cable at the center or to the side for different looks.…or at the side. If you love cables but are not so fond of the fiddliness of working a bunch of them in the round, this might be the hat for you. This pattern was originally published in Love of Knitting’s 2014 Holiday Knitting issue. I had the chance to use Imperial Yarn Erin for the first time. It’s a delightful wool yarn with great stitch definition.

This is actually one of my favorite hats to wear in real life, so I’m very happy to share this pattern with you today.

I knew I wanted to make a hat as part of my exploration of tapestry crochet this month, and I had just the right amount of leftover yarn!

I had some bits of Imperial Yarn Columbia in 116 Black Cherry and Imperial Yarn Erin in 01 Natural left in my stash.

I used some of Carol Ventura‘s tapestry crochet graph paper (available here), though, to be fair, this pattern is so simple I could have used regular graph paper.

Free pattern: Chevrons and Stripes Slouchy Hat

I’m releasing a new free crochet pattern every week through December. Each one can be made with 3 skeins of yarn or less, and would make a great gift (for someone else, or as a reward to yourself for all of your holiday crafting!).

Chevrons and Stripes Slouchy Hat, free crochet pattern by Underground Crafter

This post contains affiliate linksThe yarn for the sample was generously provided by Imperial Yarn.

The Chevrons and Stripes Slouchy Hat is a great stash buster pattern. I used three partial skeins of the lovely Imperial Yarns Erin, a medium weight, sustainable wool yarn made in America. I really enjoyed working with the yarn to create a sample for a pattern that will appear in an upcoming magazine, and I had remnants left over in three different colors.

The pattern uses cluster stitches to create a raised chevron pattern.
