    3. Let me know if you have any questions! And I'll admit, I have fewer little girl patterns than little boy or unisex patterns since I don't have any models handy. :)

  3. I made a "polka dot" hat and thought it was from your blog. Loved the pattern but lost it. Is it yours?

    1. Sorry, doesn't sound like it! The only hat I have that could be described as polka-dotty in the least would be the blister stitch hat (http://www.ballstothewallsknits.com/2013/11/blister-stitch-hat.html). Good luck finding it though! :)

    1. Well, what a nice thing to say! Thank you. :) And I suppose you already know it, but, of course - if you ever have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

  5. I wish I was an experienced knitter and could choose any of your amazing designs to work with... but alas, I am not. I've been going through your patterns trying to find the simpler ones, but not super good at assessing even that.. What would you recommend as one of your easier hats for me to start off with?

    1. Hi Virginia!

      I'm happy to help with this. :) First question, are you comfortable with circular knitting? And secondly, are there any techniques you'd really rather not do (such as cabling or whatnot)?

  6. Hi Gretchen,
    First off, thank you so much for sharing all these awesome patterns, your work is really beautiful. I am a new knitter and have been able to do a couple of your cowls (Autumn Rose and currently working on 81 yard cowl.) But I was wondering would you ever consider doing a poncho or sleeveless vest...something easy enough for a newbie?

    1. Hi Amy!

      I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying my site! And I have definitely considered both a poncho and a vest... and hopefully some day that will appear. I am still too involved in childcare at this point in my life to make it happen, but I'm confident someday it will! :)

  7. Thanks so much for all the beautiful patterns and especially for the gallery. It can be irritating to see a list of patterns but no idea what they look like. Also, your patterns are unique. I've been knitting for 40 years and am always looking fresh patterns. I do knitting for charity as well as family and don't like to keep giving them the same thing. I try to make things different by putting little embellishments on them so they can feel "special" and not the run of the mill items normally given to charity. Thank you for sharing!

  9. Hello Gretchen, I've knitted two of your hats for my Granddaughters,huge successes, thanks. Here's my query-I have a 7year old Granddaughter who wants a chunky knit cardigan. I bought the wool, (James Brett Chunky )but the shop had no chunky cardigan patterns for kids-mad! Do you think I can get away with using another make's pattern? I.e. sirdar Toddler Aran wool pattern? Many thanks, Jeannine

    1. Hi Jeannine!

      I'm sure you could adapt another pattern, if you needed to. Have you checked Ravelry for patterns with no success? I think the biggest issue in adapting wouldn't be the width of the stitch (you can always just use a smaller needle) but the height. It is possible you would need less rows in order to get the same measurements, and some patterns would adapt for that better than others.

    1. Hi there!

      That might be a pattern I design some day, but I haven't done it yet. :) I did a Ravelry search, though, and here are the free kids poncho patterns I discovered. A few of them have hoods! http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#craft=knitting&fit=child&query=poncho&view=captioned_thumbs&availability=free&sort=best

  11. Gretchen: My name is Cassandra I wrote you along time ago about one of your scarves that I was working on.I had a problem with it, I know you revised the pattern since I was working on mine. My problem is I've misplaced the pattern can't finish the end because it was my one and only time I did the cast on provisional with scrap yarn cast on. Just remembered the name of the cast on. My memory is failing can you please help me with this? The scarf is very fancy. Thank you for your help. Cassandra (Cassy)

    1. Hi Cassy!

      The only scarf I can think of that I've designed with a provisional cast-on is the Horseshoe Cable Muffler (http://www.ballstothewallsknits.com/2014/10/horseshoe-cable-muffler.html). Is it possible you were working on a shawl instead, like the Star Cluster Mini Shawl (http://www.ballstothewallsknits.com/2014/09/star-cluster-mini-shawl.html)?
