Undergrowth Hat

Free Pattern in Knitty

Last night, after spending the day attempting to clean up my room and fill up my new filing cabinet (not a hard task, but a big one I’ll tell you), I sat down to the computer to find a tweet and forum post alerting me to some awesome news.

Knitty is live!

In the new issue is my Undergrowth pattern, a color stranded hat with a double! braid! The hat is worked in Nature Spun Sport, and you achieve different sizes (18.5, 20, 21.5″) by adjusting your needles. Best of all, because this is Knitty, it’s free! I hope you enjoy it.

I’m headed out to Durham for my book signing soon, so I won’t be updating my pattern shop until later today. In the mean time, you can find more details about Undergrowth on Ravelry or head over to Knitty to print out the pattern.

In this issue of Knitty, you’ll also find a pretty rockin’ review of The Red Collection by the editorial staff. So cool! Here’s a snapshot of the review, if you’re interested.

I must thank my gorgeous model, Mallory. She really knows how to show off the handknits.

And my favorite part of the hat, the top:

Isn’t she just gorgeous?

  1. i love the new hat pattern, mandy! it’s definitely my favorite in this issue of knitty. and yes, mallory is gorgeous! i love her red hair.

  2. Gorgeous! I love this hat design – you’ve got some fantastic patterns available but this may be one of my favorites. Love love love love those braids! By the by, I’m midway through a Ziggity hat for me – hoorah! I gave away the Ziggity mitts – and the wearer reports that she is routinely stopped because people are agog for the picot trim and want a pair! Also, lovely recent mention on Needled. Good on you, Mandy!!!

  3. Thanks so much for sharing this pattern with us knitty.com devotees. I can’t wait to get started on it this weekend. The model is absolutely beautiful and shows off this pattern/colorway exquisitely. Bravo.

  4. Thank you so much form the pattern. I Love the braided edge treatment-It is beautiful colorwork. Can’t wait to get started.
