I am wife to Jeff, homeschool mom to 8, a knit and crochet teacher and totally addicted to knitting, crocheting and other fiber arts. After knitting, crocheting and sewing my own clothing from the age of 10 on, I studied textiles & clothing in college. That lead me to 25 years of custom dressmaking and alterations work, while sewing, knitting and crocheting for my growing children. I have worked in the yarn industry for the past 3 years and have been designing my own knitting patterns. Visit my web site at Find me as DeniseInIowa on

Red and white top hat

This hat was my 4 year old son's idea. Carl picked out the yarn and told me what he wanted made from it. Dare I say that it is inspired by a certain cat? Or will I get in trouble with the Mouse and his lawyers?

The yarn is Nature Spun worsted wool. The pattern only exists in my head but I have been writing things down as I go. I can already see things that I would like to change but I am too lazy to frog and start this one over. Besides, Carl won't care. He loves it already!

Cant wait to see it on him!

Carl, Great job picking out the colors and asking your Mom to make this.

I love the baby set as well. I've been thumbing through my books and One Skein Wonder holds several patterns I look forward to making. Including this baby set. So darn cute!
