Innocent Big Knit 2012 – WIP + patterns

I am having so much fun with the little hats I’m making for the Innocent Big Knit! So far I have made 12 of them, just like this, in a flash (and with a lot of XFactor watching too). I am playing with colours and patterns and today I want to share three patterns I came up with. The heart is one I was thinking of doing for ages and I’m quite happy with how it turned out. I also thought I should knit a little bit with the current trends in mind and went for chevrons and triangles as these patterns seem so popular lately when it comes to home decor or even jewellery. I have a soft spot for the chevron one and have a feeling Innocent will get zillions of them from me.

You can download the three patterns on pdf just here.

Next, I want to play with animal faces. I’m sure you will hear laughter if you get anywhere close to La Creature’s home in the next few days. I’ll keep you posted.

These little hat are my make for September as part of the “A make a month” initiated by the felt fairy and hosted by Estelle from Twinkles, Tutorials and Twirls this month. September repository is here, go and have a look at what all participants have made!

What about you? Do you take part into the Big Knit? Did you come up with designs you would like to share with us all?

  1. Hi. Just wondered if you had a written pattern for these hats as I’m newish to knitting and can’t follow those patterns.
    Thanks

    1. Hi Rachel, I don’t have written pattern for those but the diagrams are quite easy to follow. For instance for the chevrons style, line 5 would be: primary colour (PC) 1, secondary colour (SC) 1, * PC 5, SC 1*, repeat from * to * 3 more times, PC3.
      Alternatively you could look for patterns on the Innocent website: http://www.innocentdrinks.ie/thebigknit
