Train & Tracks Hat - Locomotive, Coal Car, Passenger Car, Caboose knitting pattern in PDF format is written for ages 3-10 with a 20" circumference. Train tracks are designed into a modified corrugated ribbing that mimics rails and railroad ties. A steam locomotive and three train cars are designed around the whole hat above the tracks. This hat is knitted in the round using stranded colorwork. Optional duplicate stitch is used for the coal and steam/smoke, if you so desire. I have also included some notes on re-sizing the hat...smaller or bigger. The pattern is written for worsted weight yarn with a gauge of 5sts=1".
Thank you for looking and for loving my design enough to consider buying it. I've been knitting and selling my knitted items for a long time now. It takes many hours to create a cute design that just “works”. And then, to write an easy to follow, thorough, yet concise pattern. Knitting my designs over and over through the years, I have, in mind, as I start publishing some; keep it simple and sweet. Having said that, my hat patterns do cover several pages, organized like this…. 1) Title, picture, facts like materials needed, gauge, etc. 2) Legend and all knitting instructions 3) Graph (s), notes and contact info 4) Additional pictures, sometimes!
Enjoy the compliments...tell 'em “lulu designed it and I knit it”! Happy knitting, Lynne, aka imalulu
