I designed and knit this cute Butterfly Hat for my darling little girl. First knit pattern I've designed and would like a few people to test my pattern and give me some feed back. The pattern fits approximately 6 months old infants. If I have enough interest I may work up patterns for other size as well.
Butterfly Hat – infant size 6 months
US size 10, 6mm 16” circle needle ~ gauge 15 stitches & 21 rows = 4”
unstretched 15” circumference x 5.5” height (edge naturally rolled)
I used Caron Simply Soft yarn, but any worsted weight yarn should work fine as long as it is a solid color so the decorative stitch will show up.
If you are interested in being a pattern tester for me. Please post in the comments as well as email at firstname.lastname@example.org and put "Butterfly Hat Tester" in the subject line. I will email the first 10 interested people a pdf file of the pattern. Please post in the comments if you are interested in a different size, and if the interest is high enough I will figure out a pattern for other sizes as well. You can email me for any questions or advice and I will try and get back to you as soon as possible. In exchange for this free pattern I ask that you have the hat completed in two weeks, followed by emailing me feed back and photos with your permission to post them on my blog. I would also appreciate your photos linked to the Ravelry page as well if you are a member.
As of 5-17-10 all test knitters are hard at work. Thanks everyone. I'll post pictures when I get them back. You can still post comments on other sizes of hats that you may be interested in, if this test knitting process goes well. Thanks for all the support and compliments I've received. Dana
