DIY HOLIDAY GIFTS ARE MADE NOW!!!
Hello DIY projects lovers, this post is just for you. A year ago I had a DIY gift serie for people who like to give handmade gifts in holidays which has more value and shows real feelings better than expensive gifts. Because you consume your valuable time and effort making those gifts with love.
Here is a project I am working on for our expected new born next year. A simple colorful knit hat. I wanted to share with you where I got the idea from and the multi design free patterns you can use to make hats just like the image above.
And I want to add above that video tutorials that personally helped me advance in knitting as a beginner. So you can do just like I do! I watch the videos carefully to follow the basic start and ending steps using my own pattern details for the specific project I am making.
So before you start following the pattern, if you are a beginner you need to watch these videos first:
