Mon Amie Beret ~ Free Knitting Pattern

Hi Knitting Friends!

I have a free knitting pattern to share today, and if you’d like an ad-free PDF download, you can buy the PDF for $2 in my Ravelry Shop. My Mon Amie Beret is reversible with one nubbly side and one side with a “cracked rib.” It’s knit from super bulky yarn so it’s a speedy make for Fall!

If a favorite hat is like a favorite friend – warm, sweet and multifaceted – why shouldn’t your newest hat be the same?

Mon Amie is a soft and slouchy beret, knit in the round from the bottom up. And it’s reversible! Make one for yourself and your favorite amie!

Mabel Mitts

Hi Knitters,

The Mabel Mitts are made in a plush lace rib that will keep you texting, stitching, and cozy all the while.


They are worked flat and seamed at the inside wrist leaving a thumb hole. You’ll pick up thumb stitches and work an easy-peasy gusset–so easy we should really just call it a tube–because it has no shaping whatsoever.mabel2

Cute and practical, these mitts work up in a snap of your fingers.

They also make nice gifts for friends you deem worthy of knitted lace.

The pattern includes a chart and written instructions so you can choose your own adventure!mabel8
