Accessories are more fun in sets


Wanna make this hat? If you knit it, and show it off online, I’ll send you pattern for the matching mitts for free (they have such a pretty thumb). Details below!

I’ll start with the short version, because we’re all tired, but there are more details at the end if you have questions.

Short version:

  1. Make sure you’re on the mailing list and knit this hat. It’s called Decorum, and it’s up on both ravelry and payhip right now.
  2. Post a picture of the finished hat on a human head on either ravelry or instagram before the mitts come out (later in March, probably March 22).
  3. When the mitts come out, I’ll write to the mailing list and include a link where you can send me a picture of your hat and your email address. If you do, I’ll send you the matching mitt pattern for free!

Ok, that’s the short version. If you already know you’re in, just make sure you’re on the mailing list, knit the hat, and show it off. Then check your email again when the mitts come out and we’ll make it happen!

But if you want more details, we can do that too. Let’s do it Q&A style.

Long version:

  • Do you have to be on the mailing list? Yup! That’s the only really practical way for me to get the same info to everyone at the same time and for you to share your info with me so I can send you the code for the mitt pattern. You can absolutely totally unsubscribe once you’ve got the mitts, there’s a link on every single email, I won’t mind at all (I won’t even know).
  • What dates are we looking at? The hat is out now. The mitts will follow later in March. My best guess is March 22, but it could be a week later. Given the state of the world, I’m, ahem, hesitant to cast any date in stone. But the plan is March 22. So you should have plenty of time to knit the hat and post a picture of it before the mitts go live.
  • Am I going to steal your photos? Nope! Your photos are yours! What I might do is say ‘oh, hey, you can see projects folks have made over here’ and then link to the projects tab in ravelry or to posts on instagram (sort of like I’ve often done with other patterns in the past). But I’m not going to use your photos in the pattern or on my site or on the pattern listing. Your photos are yours, I’m not going to take them!
  • Do you have to use ravelry? Nope! You can share your photo on either ravelry or instagram, either one is totally fine. And I’ll have a way for you to get the mitt pattern either on ravelry or on payhip as well.

I think that probably covers all our bases, but I’ll post about it again as we get closer to the mitt release. But for now, all you need to do is make sure you’re on the mailing list, share a picture of the hat on ravelry or instagram after it comes out, and keep an eye on your inbox when the mitts go live!
