Twisty Cap

IMG_20160817_121759.jpg

If you know how to knit, purl, k2tog and p2tog, and knit in the round – you can make this twisty cap. I used circular needles for the majority, then switched to DPNs for the decreases.

Here is the link for the free pattern 🙂

Happy Knitting!

I’m Smitten for Knittin’!

This is my first post to my yarnalicious blog! Welcome! Thanks for stopping by 😉

I’m a 34 year old mom, wife, friend, writer, who started knitting in 2012 after my doctor suggested it as a way to help my anxiety. At that time I was suffering from extreme anxiety. I started knitting in late Winter 2012, my first real project was a shawl for my mother (modeled by my daughter below):

I fell in love with knitting – which is where I came up with the idea of Smitten 4 Knittin. When I am knitting I don’t worry about other things. It has helped my anxiety more than I could have ever imagined. My mind is at peace, I sleep better, I have lost a lot of weight, and in the process I’ve knit things for friends, family, and even strangers. With love in every stitch. You’ve been Smitten! 🙂
