I was flicking through a magazine recently and I came across this really amazing jacket made with a geometric print fabric. The print was so cool that I just had to attempt to recreate it and so I created my first ever knitting chart using Excel (there are loads of tutorials on the internet). I’m so pleased with how it turned out and I’ve already knitted up a swatch for it using some leftover acrylic yarn. I think that I’ll use the print for a pillow or something like that.

And for anyone wanting to use the pattern, I converted it into pdf format for you to download.

And in crocheting news, I made the Pretty Puffs Slouchy Hat from Crafty Pants which I had been wanting to make for ages. I didn’t realise that the top was just plain double crochet from looking at the photos on Ravelry but it’s a really pretty hat and it’s very easy to make too. I added an extra row of puff stitches to make the hat a little more slouchy and I like how it turned out. I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease in a cream colour (it might be Fisherman) with a J hook(6mm).
