I’m excited (and a whole lot nervous!) to tell you that my first proper pattern has been professionally edited (thank you Ruth!),  tested by a bunch of lovely knitters (thank you everyone!) and is now available to purchase!

Skeppe Hat Pattern



A cosy hat with a bit of slouch, Skeppe is the perfect hat for all the family, suitable for boys and girls, men and women. I love the tassles but you might choose to leave them off, or even pop a pom pom on the top instead!

Ideal for the adventurous beginner knitter, Skeppe is a quick, enjoyable knit. If you can knit and purl, you can master this hat!

The “tassel stitch” pattern is really effective, simple to master and fun to knit. I love the way the ribbing flows effortlessly into the tassel pattern, and the way the tassel pattern flows into the crown shaping at the top. 


The two hats in my pictures are knitted in beautiful 100% wool, worsted weight yarns by Quince and Co. but you could substitute another worsted weight yarn of your choice.

The pattern includes:

  • clear and easy to understand instructions in both written and charted form;
  • four sizes, from children to adults;
  • notes on how to knit the “tassel stitch”;
  • clear colour photos;
  • step by step instructions for the (optional) tassel and twisted cord.


If you want to read more about my design process, I’ve written about it here. You might also like to check out some of my test knitters’ projects for some inspiration and yarn ideas. There are some lovely examples of Skeppe!
