So long story short, I've been going through all of those previous patterns, testing them, rewriting them, and I hope to post at least one a month to this blog in 2013. Pattern writing is a new skill to me and I want to refine it over time, as well as provide something new on the blog for you lovely following followers.
I say all of that to say this; my latest pattern is a full size man's beanie hat called, appropriately, the Beanie Man. (If you don't get it, click here.) The old file looked complete, so I printed it out, pulled out a hook and some yarn, and got to work.
Halfway through the pattern, I discovered a small problem.

Anybody have a doll in need of a comfy winter hat?
So long story short, no pattern this Friday, SweetShoppers. I think I need to go back to the drawing board and work this one out. There will be plenty of patterns come 2013, though!
Meanwhile...if you'd like to see some patterns that are correct, check out the Raspberry Beret and the Cup Cozy.
Peace on earth! And goodwill to all you beautiful people!
