Chevron Love Hat Pattern

It’s Monday, and here I am with my Chevron Love Hat pattern all ready for you to download. I know! Goal? Met.

This is the first serious pattern I’ve come up with that I’m sharing with all of you, I’ve tried to write it out in the best way I know. However, if there are any questions at all, or if you find any errors, or even have suggestions on how something might be explained more clearly, please do let me know!! Email me here- knitterlythings AT gmail DOT com

AND!! If you knit one of these, I would LOVE to see it! If you have a blog, email me with the link, if you don’t email me some photos, and I’ll start a flickr group for them all! I’m excited to see what you all come up with.

One more thing- This is the first time I’ve ever created a PDF file. I spent alot of time painstakingly formatting this thing in Word as a document file, I finally got it to look all pretty and “right” but then when I converted it to a PDF, alot got lost in the translation. Any suggestions? I’d love to know a better way.

This is no longer a free pattern. I’ve come to the very hard decision. There are too many people using it for their own gain, and I am not comfortable with that. If you have already downloaded this pattern in the past, please do enjoy it.

    Thanks! I love it – it’s so cute.
    I’m working on an Odessa right now but when I get a chance, a Chevron Love will hop onto the needles.

    I am not sure what you used to convert your Word file to PDF, but what works best for me is Acrobat Distiller (which luckily is built into my Acrobat printer option).

    If you ever get annoyed at something like this, I can convert the file for you lickety split.

    What did you use to turn it into a pdf? I have to make a lot of pdf’s for work, and the most reliable pdf generator I’ve found is at It works sort of like a printer, you “print” your document to a pdf so all the formatting stays the same.

    I’ve had this problem, but only on a MAC. So, I’ll ask, what platform were you on: MAC or PC? What version of WORD did you use? And I second Cheryl about the pdf maker, which PDF maker did you use?

    My problem was with Word 2003 printing to a PDF through acrobat distiller, so that should have gone well. Anyways, it was only on the Mac that I had this problem. When we switched over to the PC, I was able to print fine. Not sure why. I also had to change the images in the word file to *.ems images I think. There was a lot of altering to get the printing correct.

    Lovely hat. I’ll have to look through my stash for some yarn to make it.

    I just came across this hat on Ravelry (I like to click on the avatars of designers on the pattern page that strike me as interesting to see what they’ve designed!)and I am in LOVE with it! I’ve just downloaded the file and I greatly look forward to working it up! I likely won’t get to it until the fall but I wanted to thank you immediately for the pattern! Thank you so much for sharing it!
