Elle-Gator (Hat + Neck-warmer) Free Knitting Pattern for Beginners
Elle-Gator (Hat + Neckwarmer) is our free knitting pattern for beginners
In the face of all that is overwhelming and out of our control, we here at The Woven Co have been focused on creating easy and accessible patterns so we can get knitting.
Introducing; The Elle-Gator
Elle (said Ellie) was my room mate here in Wanaka, and needed to make the trip home to the states. So to calm her nerves and focus on being creatively active, I developed this pattern for her – and our wider community. The plan was a nice easy rhythmic knit that could make something lovely and wearable – from just one ball of Sumptuous.
Elle-Gator beginner knitting kit is the perfect easy and practical step into knitting, make your own neckwarmer, hat and ponytail beanie – all in one!
