Ski, bunny, ski!

December 3, 2009

Hello, friends.

What better way to kick off the Craftery than with a free pattern? I give you my first original design that actually worked like I told it to:


Ski tracks! Just like in the cartoons, kids.

Cascade Cloud 9 (1 ball, 109 yards)
Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK (1 ball, 127 yards)
Size 7 (4.5mm) 16″ circulars
Link in Ravelry
Free pattern here: Ski, bunny, ski! (PDF)

It’s got cables. It’s got a big ol’ (3.5″) pom-pom. It’s got sun-shaped decreases. And it’ll keep your ears warm and snuggly all winter long.

In truth, you could use any worsted-weight yarn for this. Solid or semi-solid colors work best. My colors here are on the girly side, but the hat works for dudes too. And of course, the pom-pom is optional. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for squeezability, but optional.

PS: Let me know if you find any errors. I’ll get ’em fixed up.
