Hi Jo, thanks so much for sharing your patterns with us. I have really enjoyed the challenge and trying out new techniques . Your instructions are excellent and I have learnt so much about knitting! Keep it going!

Jo's comments   Thank you for such a lovely message, glad you have enjoyed your knitting. I too have learnt a lot along the way!

Happy Knitter
I found your website through my cousin who has a collection of your pattern books. I have found these patterns for the mini hats so useful. I printed them and now my mum is knitting hats for the innocent smoothie charity. As am I! In the last week we have about 50 done between us! I have done all the letters and I'm thinking of adjusting the letter pattern to doing numbers! I'm really enjoying it as I have found knitting for the last couple of years on and off quite relaxing. My cousin has knitted the whole nativity scene amongst other patterns of yours and they were beautiful. Your patterns are easy to follow with simple steps for even a novice like me! Thanks again!

Jo's comments   Hi There, I'm wondering if you have confused me with Jean Greenhowe - she definitely does pattern books, where as I don't. She also did patterns for a Nativity Set. I've also knitted them, they are lovely.
I did a few knitted numbers, just so I could do the date with the Innocent Logo. They were fun hats to do. Glad you are enjoying knitting hats and have found these patterns helpful.
Thanks for getting in touch. Jo

I have adapted your witches hat pattern as I hate stitching especially in black. Cast on 42 sticthes follow the brim pattern, this will leave you with 28 stitches to start the colour band, follow the pattern. This gives an all in one hat and brim. less sewing.

Jo's comments   Hi There, other people have done this I think. Perhaps I will put it on the site as an alternative. Thanks for your message. Jo

Jo's comments   B & T Break off yarn leaving a long end, thread it through all the stitches on the knitting needle, pull up to gather tightly, then fasten off.

Happy Hatting,

Thank you so much for sharing these great patterns. My brother sent me the link as he thought they were cute. I haven't knitted since I was a teenager but these hats have reignited my passion! I thought I'd knit 20 but as I've just finished my eightieth, my target is now 100. I am completely hooked. Thank you for inspiring me to pick up my needles again!

Jo's comments   Thanks for your lovely message, so glad your interest in knitting has returned. Bit like my story, I'd not really knitted much since my teens, and now I'm never without my needles! Good luck on the 100. :)
