Dragon Curve Fractal Hat Pattern

Fractals have always fascinated me. They are a beautiful combination of mathematics and art. At its most basic level, a fractal is a pattern that looks similar at every level of magnification. The Dragon Curve Fractal is the fractal featured in the chapter headings for Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton.

The Dragon Curve Fractal is created by applying a transformation to a line multiple times as follows:

I designed this hat to show off the lacy design of the Dragon Curve Fractal. It is a medium weight, double knit hat that features this fractal repeated all around the hat. Contrasting yarns show off the design, especially if one of the yarns is a variegated yarn. The hat is fully reversible, featuring opposite color schemes on each side. Try wearing the hat with the matching Dragon Curve Fractal Scarf.

Cattitude Scarf Pattern

Cattitude Scarf Pattern

As a cat owner and a knitter, I know it goes without saying that keeping cats away from yarn is a project in itself. With the Cattitude Scarf, I wanted to show the playfulness of a cat going after a ball of yarn, with the yarn trailing all down the length of the scarf. Double knit, the scarf is fully reversible, featuring opposite color schemes on each side.

Full instructions are included for the double knitting technique. The finished length is approximately 58 inches (147.3 cm). The length can be increased or decreased by approximately 12.5 inch (31.75 cm) intervals.

Love of Cables Pillow Pattern

The Love of Cables Pillow is something I created to show how much I love cables and love creating new designs with them. Cables form a delicate heart shape with twists going up the sides and across the back. The pillow can be knit as either a removable pillow cover with a button flap closure or a fully enclosed pillow with stuffing. It makes a beautiful accent for the home or a great gift for someone you love!

The finished dimensions are approximately 12” by 12” (30.5 by 30.5 cm).
