Aviatrix mark2

Since I had only provided the Aviatrix pattern in 2 (small) sizes, and yet 7841 people still decided it was worth downloading, I decided to devote my recuperation time to re-knitting the hat and re-writing the pattern.

I now present to you the New Aviatrix pattern, not very different to the old - just a lot better! Now there are 7 (as correct as possible) sizes and variations for 3 yarn weights - sport, DK or worsted (so break out the Malabrigo!)

The largest size will fit up to a small adult head depending on the yarn you use, I suggest woollen yarns with good memory.

I have left the old Aviatrix pattern up for posterity - but just ignore it and download the new one!

thanks for the get well emails, my insides feel normal again, I actually feel incredibly well, better than I have in years, can't wait to get back to those wraps I was working on...and then there are those cute wee boy sweaters I sketched out recently...yep looks like the baby is going to be a boy...that's going to be a culture shock!

What a way to spend your recuperation! Thanks so much for the additional sizes - and for continuing to offer the pattern for free as well! I wish you all the best.

I am glad to hear you are feeling so good. The aviatrix are very nice and in so many sizes which is good. You will love being a grandmother and yes a boy will be a culture shock to you, but they are great.

Mmmmmmm, what a scrumptious pile of hats. I'm itching to make another Aviatrix, but I have a couple of other things to get out of the way first. The one I made for my friend back in the UK was very well received - thank you SO much for the the pattern.

I'm glad to hear you're making a good recovery, and how exciting to have a baby boy on the way.

Aren't you nice to share more sizes :)
