Uploaded My first Loom Pattern to ETSY and it SOLD the same day!

I'm super excited!  The new Slouchy Newsboy hat with the short brim is now on my ETSY site!  It will stay listed as one item but no worries there are plenty to go around.  I just re-list it when it sells.

I listed it in the wee hours this morning and already had the first purchase on it before lunch.  (update while writing this, I sold one more! yay!) I even emailed it out already, yay!  One thing I'm doing is including as many video technique links inside your PDF when you purchase. I hope that this helps and encourages more people to purchase my patterns. 

I would really love to make this a new career for me and be able to stay home with my children.  Selling the patterns enables me to keep my "extreme hobby" as Mikey, aka Michael Sellick at The Crochet Crowd, would tell me. It funds getting new yarn and supplies for filming, editing and producing. 

I do hope you enjoy the pattern as much as I do.  It is a super hat for a gift, too and just in time to make for the upcoming holidays! There is also a tweak included to make it less slouchy or more for a male to wear it.

Here is the pattern link! Happy Looming!! -Kristen

  1. How exciting Kristen! I just ordered the pattern through Etsy. It looks great!
    I made my first hat using your decrease technique at the crown and it worked really well. Thanks so much!
    Cheers, Karen

My name is Kristen. I’m an Interior Designer & knitwear designer as well as a YouTube Tutorial filmmaker & Video Host for crafts, knitting and more. My Loom Knitting tutorials are great for Knitters (or any crafter) who wanna try their hand and want to know how to convert their stitches over to the loom. Many do it to ease their hands/carpel tunnel or work faster. It’s definitely a growing trend for traditional knitters to take up or people who love crafting with yarn! My site is GoodKnitKisses or YOUTUBE. I also write and sell my own loom patterns on my ETSY shop and on Vivaloom.com  I look forward to meeting new people and sharing the love of fiber arts :-) -Kristen
