Men’s Hat Patterns

A lot of knitters and crocheters are people who have men in their lives that they love to make things for. But many of us are attracted to fun pompoms, complicated stitch patterns, and slouchy hats that the dudes in our lives would just not be into. And I’m guilty of this, too. So if you’re looking for some simple, manly hat patterns, you’ve come to the right place. And most of these are crochet! I often lean towards knitting patterns when knitting for men because the fabric ends up being thinner, which is what Mr Evangelist prefers, so I know what a challenge it can be for crocheters to find a good men’s hat pattern. But there are plenty included here! Check them out and try one today!

Who says men’s hat patterns have to be solid colours? The Big Bay Beanie Crochet Pattern is a great multi-coloured pattern worked up with chunky weight yarn in 5 colours and it’s simple enough for a beginner/advanced beginner. I believe this pattern is also available for free on the designer’s blog, but for just a few bucks you can grab an easy-to-read, printable pdf pattern: CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE BIG BAY BEANIE CROCHET PATTERN.

Simple hats like the Basic Knit Beanie for Men and Boys Knitting Pattern is the kind of pattern I usually make for Mr Evangelist. He’s already got a pretty big head, so he doesn’t want to add the bulk of a thick and chunky hat to it. Also, while he’s trying to stay warm, sometimes those chunky hats make him too hot. He’s already pretty hot (woot woot!) so we don’t want to overdo it. 😉 The decreases on this knit hat pattern make a lovely swirled crown that sits nice and flat on the head. It’s a great guide to learning decreases. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE BASIC KNIT BEANIE FOR MEN AND BOYS KNITTING PATTERN.

For a slightly textured ribbed crochet hat pattern, check out this Men’s Slouchy Knit-Look Crochet Hat Pattern. I love that it’s not super slouchy. That’s just the right amount of slouch for the men that I know. This is an intermediate crochet pattern in two adult sizes.

And many little boys like to play pretend year-round, so a fun hat like this knight helmet can be made for Halloween and worn all winter long! CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE KNIGHT HELMET CROCHET HAT PATTERN.

Colourwork Beanies

Knit hats, toques, beanies, winter caps: whatever you call them they’re cuter with a fun pattern knit into them. Colourwork is a skill that is a little intermediate, but usually, these kinds of projects only require the basic knit and purl stitches. You just add some colours in there for a fun design. These kinds of projects are great for using up a partial skein of yarn and you can play around with colours to your heart’s content! I’ve found a bunch of great knit hat patterns for you to try out your intarsia or fair isle skills!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Maybe it’s just because I’m a sucker for mustard, but the Sedona Diamond Fair Isle Beanie Pattern has a cute diamond design that is geometric and fun. Knit with chunky yarn, this hat would work up quickly, and with just two colours, it would make a good first colourwork project!

More diamonds! More mustard! The Fair Isle Diamonds Knitting Hat Pattern is another bulky weight knit hat pattern with just two colours to make another good first colourwork project. Which diamond pattern would you choose? I’m having trouble picking one…

It’s always kind of fun to have a cheeky word on your hat. Maybe you like this Wine Beanie Knitting Pattern from LadyJayCrochet will inspire you to make one of these bulky weight cheeky hats for a friend or loved one this year. That is the beauty of small bulky weight yarn projects like hats; they work up in just a couple of hours!

Maybe you’re more of a coffee lover? Well, there’s a toque for you, too! The Coffee Beanie Knitting Pattern is just the right pattern for your friend who doesn’t go anywhere without their cup of joe.

The Minnehaha Hat Knitting Pattern is a classic “little hearts” knitting pattern. If you’re new to knitting, those little hearts are just one knit stitch made in a different colour. So it’s really fun to see it come together in dotted little hearts. This pattern is also worked up in a super bulky weight yarn, so it will only take you about 1-2 hours to knit up this little beauty! Imagine making one of these for baby in the same colours as a coffee hat for mama? Adorable little matching “set”!

The Big Heart Beanie Knitting Pattern is a beginner level pattern with video tutorials, and the heart isn’t actually knit into the hat, it’s embroidered on afterwards! So you wouldn’t even have to do any colourwork on this one to achieve the same stunning results!

If you have a little more time on your hands and skill under your belt, Grandpas Garden Fair Isle Hat Knitting Pattern is a sweet-looking little hat, knit with much finer wool, but then you can achieve the gorgeous detail of a dainty garden full of flowers! As we’re yearning for spring in late winter, this hat can bring a little joy as we dress for the elements!

How about some handmade first married Christmas gifts for your favourite newlyweds? The Mrs Beanie Knit Hat Pattern and the Mr Beanie Knit Hat Pattern are matching set for a new husband and wife team.

The Big Zig Beanie Knitting Pattern is another colourwork pattern using bulky weight yarn. I love the sideways chevron design on this sweet beanie. Imagine all the colour combinations you could use on this cute hat pattern!

The Riverbend Beanie in 6 sizes is a perfect hat pattern to whip up the whole family fun and warm winter hats with stripes! The multi-coloured yarn matched with the cream adds a lot of fun to this basic striped hat.

There are so many great bulky weight yarn colourwork hats this year! The Aspen Beanie Knitting Pattern has a simple but interesting design, wouldn’t get boring to knit at all! And again with that large yarn, works up quickly as a last-minute handmade gift!

Using only 2 colours and bulky weight yarn, the Skyfall Beanie Knitting Pattern comes with two charts to make two different hats with slightly different designs on them. This is the perfect project for beginners who want to dive into the world of fair isle knitting and a nice quick knit for the fair isle pros. The pattern includes detailed instructions and a tips and tricks page to help you along the way, as well as a very inconspicuous join/jog in the charts!

Finally The Mountaineer Toque Knitting Pattern. I love the trees and the mountains in the background. If you’re venturing out into the great outdoors this winter, this adorable hat would be just perfect! Inspired by the Coastal Mountains of British Columbia, this fair isle knitting pattern is great for adventurous beginners and well as seasoned knitters. Fun for everyone!

So which hat will you choose? With so many options, it is hard! Whatever you choose, it can’t be the wrong decision! So jump in, grab a pattern and a couple of balls of different coloured yarn and get to work! Or pin it for later.

Warm Winter Weather Wear

Warm Winter Wear

Well, the winter weather has arrived, at least where I live. It’s not too bad just yet, so don’t mistake my announcement for complaining. But it is definitely time to break out the knit and crochet accessories to keep ears, necks, heads and hands warm this season. If you’re looking for a pattern to make for a gift to give this season or to keep yourself warm this winter, I’ve got a great collection of fashionable knit and crochet accessory patterns for you!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First off, these twisted ear warmers are all the rage this year. Great for keeping your ears warm while not messing up your top knot or ponytail. The River Ear Warmer twisted headband crochet pattern is a great and simple crochet pattern that a beginner could handle. The beauty of these little projects is that they only take a couple of hours and a partial skein of yarn. They make great stash-busting projects!

The Woven Headwarmer crochet pattern has a little more texture and has that lovely bowtie twist to finish it off! Super cute and what a fun pattern to highlight a soft and luscious yarn. If you only have one skein of beautiful and expensive yarn, this is your project. You can make up a few of these with that one gorgeous skein and have gifts for your closest friends!

Buffalo plaid is still super cute and trendy and it’s so super fun to see three colours of yarn come together to form this fun pattern. Don’t you love the large wooden button on this Buffalo Plaid Crochet Cowl Pattern? I love fun finishing touches like that. It makes a piece look so much more professional!

Here’s another gorgeous cowl to try out: the Triangle Scarf Crochet Pattern is a textured granny-stitch style cowl that would be a great welcome back to crochet project for those whose grannies taught them the simple granny square and that’s all they really remember. This would also be a great pattern to highlight some special yarn you’ve been saving.

Check out the fringe on this June Berry Cowl crochet pattern… with buttons as well! I love the gorgeous texture on this cowl pattern and fringe is so on-trend right now. It’s a great time to get working on this beautiful scarf, for you or for a friend!

If you’ve always wanted to try cables, the Cascades Big Knit Scarf Pattern is a great first cable project. With bulky yarn and just one big braid cable through the scarf, it’s a great project to practice and learn. Just a tip: if you’re just learning, using a light coloured yarn will help you to more easily see your work and make it easier to fix any mistakes.

If you have a little more experience knitting, you might like to try knitting yourself this Chunky Mittens Knitting Pattern to keep your fingers warm this winter. These chunky mittens look so warm and cozy! My fingerless mittens just aren’t cutting it anymore; I’m going to need to get me some tips!

Ooooh! Or here’s another cute mittens pattern! The Bit of Honey Mittens Knitting Pattern has a sweet honeycomb textured stitch pattern that is subtle and gorgeous! This is a great project to spend a little more time and care with, but has a great finished result!

Don’t worry: I haven’t left the crocheters’ hands out in the cold. The Cadence Mittens crochet mitten pattern is a lovely textured crochet mitten pattern with a cable-like textured stitch to practice something new for crocheters looking for a little more of a challenge.

Now, THIS is a fun hat pattern! I love seeing the animal print that is making its way into knitwear! Check out this super fun Animal Attraction Leopard Print Pompom Hat knitting pattern! What a fun winter accessory!

And back to plaid. This one is a knitting pattern, though, and only made with 2 colours of yarn. The Super Bulky Buffalo Plaid Hat knitting pattern is a quick knit made with super bulky yarn; don’t you just love it with a big faux fur pom on top?

And while not exactly a wearable accessory, this Textured Christmas Crochet Stocking Pattern is a great project to get working on this time of year. It would make a lovely gift for a friend or loved one! Don’t you just love the beautiful bobble stripes? I love the natural coloured yarn used here, but I think any solid colour would look delightful in this pattern!

So there’s this week’s collection of fabulous patterns to knit and crochet. Making them and wearing them will keep you warm all season! Pick up a pattern today and find some yummy yarns to make one of these patterns. Or pin it for later!

Chunky Crocheted Hats

Last week I shared a bunch of chunky knit hat patterns, but just so I don’t leave my hookers out of the loop, here’s a great group of winter beanies (toques for us Canadians) for you to start working on. Hats make great handmade gifts because they work up quickly and usually take just one skein of yarn. And you have plenty of time before the busy gift-giving season to work up some of these gorgeous patterns!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

The beautiful textured beanie, called The Tamarack Beanie comes out so warm and cozy! It’s the perfect winter hat to add texture and warmth to any outfit.

The Ella Beanie is another lovely textured hat suitable for every day. It is crocheted using Aran wool, so it will keep you warm from icy winter winds. It comes in 7 different sizes, from newborn to adult, so you can easily make one of these lovely toques for the whole family! Mommy and me hats, here we come!

Can you tell that I’m super into these textured toques with faux fur pompoms? There are so many options out there, including this lovely Maple Beanie Crochet Pattern with this sweet bobble stitch textured stripe.

Here’s another gorgeous textured crocheted beanie pattern for you, the Shell Super Chunky Winter Hat, with this lovely shell stitch pattern. Don’t you just love it in this gorgeous yellow! I’m so glad this colour is still on-trend; I love it so much!!!

The Alpine Beanie is another lovely textured crochet hat pattern. I love how it works up in a self-striping yarn. It looks like these are made with two yarns held together, so it’s a great way to incorporate a couple of different colours and a fantastic way to use up some worsted weight yarn!

The Brooklynn Cables Beanie is a fantastic cabled crochet beanie pattern. If you’re a crocheter and have always been a little jealous of the gorgeous cables on knitted items, well, here’s your pattern. The vertical stripes and the texture of this toque are just lovely!

If you have a little one on your make list, check out this adorable A Beary Cute Hat. It’s a quick and simple little pattern, with the addition of some super sweet little ears that would be just adorable on a new baby!

Of course, if you’re looking for something more basic, that you can put your own spin on, check out the Lincoln Park Beanie which includes 10 different sizes, using worsted weight yarn. This is a great pattern if you’re just learning to crochet or if you’re just starting to get into garments!

I hope you enjoy all these lovely cozy crocheted hat patterns, just in time to make them up for the toque/beanie season ahead (sweater weather, sure, but hats? definitely.) Pick up a pattern and start crocheting today or pin it for later!

True Love Knits (and Crochets)

I know, I know, Valentine’s Day is just over a week away and you have already finished all your handmade gifts for your sweethearts. Oh, what’s that you say? You haven’t? Well, I have a few ideas for you.

One of my favorite sayings about knitting for other people goes like this: Knitting is like sex. If I love you and you appreciate it, it’s free, otherwise, you can’t pay me enough. Knitting and crocheting is definitely an act of love. The amount of time that goes into handmade items makes them so valuable and cost prohibitive that most people would say they can’t afford them.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First off this adorable True Love Beanie pattern is so simple and cozy looking, I just want to make one for each of my kids and take ridiculously adorable matching pictures of them to make them hate me because they’re too old for that stuff (but they’re not and they’d be soooo cute!).

Check out these adorable love notes hats! You could make one of these in an evening or two! Perfect little handmade Valentine's Gift!

Check out these adorable love notes hats! You could make one of these in an evening or two! Perfect little handmade Valentine’s Gift!

While we’re on the subject of hats (also because #polarvortex), this beginner knitting pattern for this Pixie Hat with Heart Applique is adorable and knits up quickly with a super bulky yarn.

If your knitting skills are a little more advanced, you can make this absolutely adorable xoxo beanie. Isn’t it great? What a fun pattern! There’s no mistaking that xo pattern!

Need to sharpen your knitting skills to take on one of these projects? Check out some online knitting classes from Blueprint!

Maybe you’re up to your eyeballs in hats, though. You have twice as many feet as you do heads, so you should need twice as many socks, right? If hand-knit socks doesn’t say love, what does, amiright? Check out this creative pattern: Key to My Heart Knit Socks.

Perhaps handmade toys are the love language of your sweetheart. If that’s the case, you could crochet this sweet and understated Amelie doll. Isn’t she adorable? I love her.

And this cute little Double Heart crochet pattern is another excellent choice for a handmade toy. Love their little hugging arms!

For a less obvious handmade Valentine’s Day gift, but still adorable (and who doesn’t love something a little unexpected?) take a look at this sweet amigurumi baby sloth teether toy.

Remember, friends, true love knits. You still have some time to whip up one of these lovely patterns for someone you love. It’s always a good time to tell people you care about how you feel.

More Gorgeous Hats!

It’s still hat season, right? Good, ’cause I’m still loving them and I’m still making them! I have a lovely assortment of knit and crochet hat patterns to show you today. The pattern designers are just going nuts! And I’ll tell you about all the goodies that I can’t wait to work with!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

This gorgeous chunky cable-knit hat from SoRoBellaCreations is the first on my list. Isn’t it lovely? This pattern comes in 5 sizes and it’s great for a beginner because it knits up with super bulky yarn, so it’s a super fast project. If you need some super bulky yarn, let me recommend We Are Knitters The Wool. I just got my first order this week and it is lovely to look at, lovely to touch and lovely to work with! If you use my referral code (MGMKTKWSM) you can get $10 off your first order!

If you’re looking for a cable knit hat that is a little less bulky, then you could try The Aisling Hat Knitting Pattern from AuntJanetsDesigns. It includes instructions for both DK and worsted weight yarn options and come in 3 different sizes. Also, if you’re looking for some gorgeous faux fur pompoms like that one, I recommend GingerSnapMandie‘s shop. She has a great assortment of beautiful and large (some 6-inch pompoms are on their way to me now!!!) pompoms that will finish of your hat with style!

If you’re in the mood for an adorable fair isle project, this adorable Moosey Slouchy pattern from KnitsNKnacks4U just might be the project for you. It would make a great hat for skiing around the holidays. It has a very festive feel to it!

The Timber Toque knitting pattern from LambandCoDesigns is another festive fair isle hat, which is also made with a super bulky yarn for another quick knit! You’ll be knitting up hats so fast, you’ll have to make new friends to give them to! (And oh.my.goodness, get yourself some huge white pompoms!)

Need to sharpen your knitting skills to take on one of these projects? Check out some online knitting classes from Blueprint!

If you’re not a knitter and prefer to crochet, this Aspen Basketweave Beanie Pattern from WeavingWonder has a lovely texture and slouch to it that is right on point! I’ve been meaning to try this stitch out, so this pattern is going to make my “to make” list (it keeps getting longer all the time!!!)

Here’s another lovely crochet pattern, striped-with-textures, The Sweeney Beanie from HookYarnsandLoops looks cozy and warm with a lovely interest! It looks great for crocheters who get bored with the same stitch fast!

The Amelia Beanie Crochet Pattern from AshleighRaeCrochet is yet another lovely textured crocheted hat pattern (with a swoon-worthy faux fur pom!) to crochet up that has a slouchy, textured-stripe. So fun. I need to make one of these, too!

There’s still plenty of winter ahead for us Canadians, so there’s still plenty of time to make up a lovely handmade hat from an independent designer. Which one will you make? Pin it to share or save for later!

Double Brim Knit Hats

Have you seen this technique for a knit hat brim? These colour-block beanies are very popular right now and this seamless brim is such a great technique for creating a simple hat edge without using ribbing (but you can) or ending up with a rolled edge. So all you need to do is knit (no purling)! It also gives you the opportunity to learn a new technique: provisional cast on, though I’ll include a link to a video that doesn’t require a provisional cast on as well as the provisional cast on. It’s worth learning because the provisional cast on results in a seamless and stretchier brim. Check out these patterns for double brim knit hats that are so popular now and learn a new technique while you’re at it!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First, there’s this super simple pattern in just one colour and straight-forward stockinette stitch, The Doubly. This pattern includes video tutorials and the double brim beanie pattern from Heart Hooked by Tilly.

For a two colour option, you can pick up this Bremner Beanie knitting pattern, which comes in 5 sizes from Amy Wood and Wool.

Or try this option from DeBross NYC, which promises to be a little more slouchy. The slouchy beanies are still super popular this year.  The Savante Two Tone beanie looks great topped with a faux fur pom pom!

By adding just one more colour, you can create this trendy Double Brim Hiker Beanie. This pattern from True North Knits Co comes in sizes for the whole family. Wouldn’t winter family photos be so fun with everyone in one of these adorable hats?

Or you can add a bit of a pattern with this Fisherman Toque by Lamb and Co Designs. I love the super bulky yarn used for this beanie; it makes for a super quick project!

If you’re looking for a more involved pattern and love colourwork, check out this Lake Louise Toque knitting pattern from Woollie and Weft. Isn’t that deep teal colour beautiful?! Love it!

Take some time this winter to learn this new technique of the double brimmed hat. This video is a great tutorial if you already have a good idea of how to make a provisional cast on and you’re working in stockinette. This video has instructions for a provisional cast on, but it is worked in rib stitch, so it’s a little different, but not difficult to adapt to stockinette. And this video includes a whole pattern for free and does not require a provisional cast on. She does show you that you will get a seam, which I do not prefer, so I would use one of the other options for a cast on.

Let me know if you make one of these! Or pin it for later and to share with the world!

Beginner Crochet Hat Patterns

Hats are the perfect projects for beginner crocheters to learn this new skill! They only require a small investment of a ball of yarn (a partial ball, really!) and a hook for the most basic pattern. They are small projects that can feed a sense of accomplishment, which is what you really need when you’re learning. Also, if your budget is tight this year, learning to crochet some hats for those on your gift list, is a great way to save some money while still giving awesome gifts. I have compiled a bunch of hat crochet patterns with beginner crocheters in mind. 

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First up is this Estrela Beanie Crochet Pattern by HookedHazel; it features a delicate, interesting textured stitch, that even a beginner crocheter will pick up quickly! Don’t forget to pick yourself up some lovely (faux… because… animals) fur pompoms to finish off the look!

Next up is this Lincoln City Beanie by Fiber and Fern Designs. It works up quick and comes with 2 sizes, so you can even make a Mommy & Me set! What a fun gift!

Another easy crochet hat pattern is this lovely twist bobble stitch crochet hat pattern by HM made Belaurs. I know, maybe you don’t believe me, but you could be making stuff like this if you just have the right pattern! Easy peasy!

Here’s another super trendy, yet EASY crochet hat pattern, The Linden Beanie by Cozy Moon Designs. (Can you tell I have a thing for the fur pompoms?)

Once you get confident in your skills you’ll be making awesome stuff likeon this lovely Loretta Hat crochet pattern by Erin Nims. Trust me, you can do this!

But if you’re feeling gun-shy on the textures, The Caysen Crochet Hat Pattern is so easy and made with a chunky yarn, so it will come together super quick and you’ll amaze your friends with your mad crochet skills. And they won’t even know you just learned. Before you know it, people will be telling you to open up an Etsy shop.

If your granny ever tried to teach you the granny square, you have almost all the skills you need to make this adorable hat: The Madison Beanie from Darling Be Brave. It’s completely beginner friendly with step by step photo tutorials.

Crocheted Christmas Gifts

Christmas is coming! And especially for crafters: if you’re going to make something for your loved ones’ gifts, you need to get going! I often start too late and end up either crocheting long hours and late night or having to go with a store-bought back up plan (or–and you’re welcome to use this idea– giving handmade gift cards for a handmade item… which then gives me the Christmas break to keep working!)

But you still have time to crochet before the gift giving season is upon us, so pick a pattern and get crocheting! Here are some of my crocheted Christmas gifts picks.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

In our house, the gift giving starts with opening up a stocking. How about giving a stocking? I love this Brighton Christmas Stocking pattern by Cyprianne Nolan from Pretty Darn Adorable. It calls for a bulky yarn or two strands of worsted held together, so it would crochet up quickly and has lots of pictures to help guide you.

Is there a new baby you’re making for? Check out these adorable Mini Mukluk Booties! Designed with a beginner in mind, any crocheter will be able to make up these lovely slippers in three different sizes: 0-3 month, 3-6 months & 6-12 months. Such a fun little pattern!

Or, for an even more Christmassy pair of baby booties, you could choose these Christmas Baby Booties also at A Frayed Knot Boutique. I love the fuzzy yarn used at the top. Super sweet for a little girl to complete her Christmas outfit! 

Ok, babies are only babies for so long and then they grow up and you still want to make them handmade gifts. Winter hats are a fantastic option, especially with all the amazing options out there. Check out this amazing geometric patterned Evie Crochet Beanie Pattern from rubywebbs‘ Etsy shop. (There are lots of other great patterns in that shop, which you should also check out.)

I was almost just going to leave you at that suggestion to go check out the Ruby Webbs Etsy shop for some more great patterns, but I just love The Stevie Crochet Beanie Pattern so much that I had to share it with you. It’s another great gift giving option and comes in 7 different sizes, so you’re sure to be able to make one for anyone on your list!

If you don’t know the hat size of your recipient, you can’t go wrong with a gorgeous cowl! The fringe and buttons add a great finish to this lovely June Berry Cowl from Wild Sapling.

There are many other crocheted gifts you can make besides wearable items, including this fun Vintage Camera Bag Crochet Pattern from The Artisan’s Nook. Sometimes teens can be so hard to buy for and even more difficult to make for, but I think this little camera purse pattern is perfect for a teen gift!

I also find that boys are sometimes hard to make for as well, but I think any little boy would be delighted to receive this Star Wars Yoda and R2D2 set. This is not the only Star Wars inspired amigurumi patterns that Los Sospechosos carries in their shop. There’s a pattern for just about every character in the original series, plus a couple others.

Maybe your recipient is ready to learn to crochet or would like to learn amigurumi. This little pug dog amigurumi kit is a perfect first amigurumi project and contains everything you need to make this adorable little stuffed animal! Or… buy it for yourself to make your first amigurumi and then give the little stuffy away!

If you’re making a gift for your coworkers or your boss, you should consider making them each one of these potted cactus plants from Planet June. You can get a set of eight realistic cactus plant patterns for under $20! June is an amigurumi master! She has so many great patterns: definitely worth checking out her shop!

Well that should get you started on making some lovely gifts for Christmas! Go get yourself a pattern and get started. You have no more time than you have right now! Go go go! And pin this so others can get kickstarted too!
