the chevron baby hat pattern is finally here!


It has taken me F-O-R-E-V-E-R but it is finally here....the Chevron Baby Hat Pattern.
You know the one I promised here and here.

I created this pattern and have spilled my blood, sweat and tears into it.

So don't hate me but that is why I have decided to sell it on Etsy rather than give it away. 

Before you hate me forever let me explain. 

I really have to tell you that it was a tough decision.  I love sharing my random DIY projects, crafts and especially my knitting with you.  I also love all the inspiration that I have received from you all and your blogs.  This really is an amazing community of really talented and creative people and I love the ease and accessibility of it all.  I don't want to take away from that.  I don't want to take that away from you.  But Sweet Pea Knits is my business.  I sell the Chevron Baby Hat as one of my products and if I just give away the pattern then I may be hurting my own business.

To make it up to you I would like to giveaway the pattern to 2 lucky readers!

To enter to win please leave me a comment on this post telling me your not horribly, awfully mad at me......or you can just share which of the Sweet Pea Knit hats is your favorite. (I may be considering sharing more of my patterns.) Also, be sure to leave your email so I can send you the PDF pattern if you win.
The giveaway will close next Friday, January 27th at 11:59 pm.  
The winners will be announced Saturday, January 28th.



Thank you for being so understanding.  
I know it has to be frustrating for those who have been waiting for it.  
I did not make this decision lightly.

Super cute! Don't worry, no one hates you :)
It looks a little tricky for me, but I would definitely give it a try!

I am definitely not mad at you! I totally understand - I have been attempting to start a baking business and if I share every single thing about every thing I do then I put myself out of business. Be strong and knit hard, haha! This is adorable!

You should sell your pattern!! You worked hard on that and small business's are soooo hard to keep going. That is your mail reason to keep doing what you do. Sell Sell Sell! It is an adorable pattern.
