Two Free Knitting Patterns from Monarch Place

I wanted to share a couple of my knitting patterns with you and have them down the side of my blog for you to download at anytime.  However I haven't quite worked out how to do that yet so I will put them together in this post and when I get clever enough to link them in the side columns I will do that too. Click on the link below the name of each pattern to download the pdf.

This first pattern I've called the 'Istanbul Scarf'.  It is a really simple stitch combination and knits up quickly with worsted weight yarn.  I made this for myself for our trip to Istanbul in the Winter as after living in Qatar in 50C (120F) heat I needed some warm cuddly goodness to wrap myself in for our holiday.

This little hat pattern I designed while waiting for my first grandchild to be born.  I wanted something that would be unisex but loved the thought of being able to add a ribbon if it was a girl.  Turns out I now have a beautiful grandson and removing the ribbon was all it took to make this pattern suitable for him.  
The hearts are a lovely feature but be warned you need to knit this from a yarn that gives good stitch definition to see the hearts clearly.

I hope you enjoy making these patterns as much as I enjoyed designing and knitting them myself.



  1. I'm so excited to read this post today.

    I was just looking for a cute baby hat for my sister, who is due with a little girl in February.

    Your hat will be perfect! :-D

    1. Hi Kathryn, You can also reverse the hearts pattern chart to make the hearts the knit stitch and the background the purl stitch if you prefer it that way. This was a comment from another knitter. The patterns are also available on Ravelry so you can read others comments on there.


Thanks for stopping by. I love to read your comments so please leave some :D I've been getting lots of SPAM lately. Please note spammers, your comment is not read, I don't click on your links and I delete your comment so others can't see it and click on the links either so you are wasting your time and effort here.
