Find Familiar, a simple, easy pattern perfect for knitflix bingeing

A Dungeons & Dragons Inspired Knitted Hat Pattern

The Find Familiar spell from Dungeons & Dragons allows you to gain
the service of a spirit animal of your choosing: a new little buddy to do your bidding! I chose this spell name for this hat because knitting this hat feels… well, familiar. The lacy brim adds just that extra bit of style and fun to spice up the hat while having a super short repeat so it takes very little brain power to work up. And being 80% stockinette in the round, this knit makes the perfect companion for binge watching your favorite show or at the table while playing D&D!

Substitutions

Zauberball Crazy is a fingering weight, 2 ply yarn, but I think this hat would look great in any fingering weight yarn. Because of the simplicity of the stitches, it’s a great canvas to show off colorways, especially variegated and/or speckled! You will need approximately 50 (75, 100, 125, 150, 200)yds/45 (68, 91, 114, 137, 182)m.

Free Knitting Pattern: Saturday Afternoon Armwarmers

Free Knitted Armwarmer Pattern

It's been almost a year since the Saturday Afternoon Armwarmers were published in Knit Now Magazine and if you never got a copy of the magazine, you may have felt like you were missing out... but wait no longer! Fill out the form below to download a free PDF of the pattern.

These armwarmers are inspired by my favorite kind of weekend: The kind where I have no plans and nowhere to go. Soft, cozy and oversized, these armwarmers are what I would want to wear on a chilly Saturday afternoon while knitting in my favorite chair.

Knitting these armwarmers is like reading your favorite book for the third time. Simple stockinette in the round, a few inches of ribbing, a few increases, decreases, and just the slight complication of the thumb hole make this a relaxing knit. The two-color pattern allows for fun customization, too! Show off your own style with a unique color combo.
