Free Pattern: Held Together

Free Pattern: Held Together

As part of the Chicago Yarn Crawl 2020, this pattern will be free until August 2, 2020. 

Kits to make the hat are available here. Or put your own together with a skein of Plied North Ave. and a skein of Loft and a bobbin.

Every year during the Yarn Crawl, we highlight a yarn company that exemplifies who we are and what we believe at String Theory. This year we are highlighting two: Plied Yarns and Neighborhood Fiber Co., both amazing companies working hard to make the world a better place.

As I designed this hat I kept coming back o the idea of friendship: my friendship with Ann Weaver (cofounder of Plied), and Ann’s friendship with Karida Collins (cofounder of Plied and founder of Neighborhood Fiber Co). So much good has come from these relationships.

I hope as you knit this hat you will take a minute to appreciate all the people that hold you together. And recognize all that you do for them.

If you haven’t done the Latvian Braid before I suggest you look at the tutorial provided by Kelbourne Woolens.

if you would like a 22” hat, feel free to use needles that get a gauge of 20 st/ 4”. The fabric will still be firm enough for a hat.
