Earth Friendly Stripes Kit

- +

This pattern was designed for the Chicago Yarn Crawl and is included for free with the kit.

Every year during the crawl, we highlight a yarn company that exemplifies who we are and what we believe at String Theory. This year, we want you to take a closer look at earth-friendly Laneras.

Their commitment to sustainability goes beyond the source of their wool. For example, in the factory where the wool is processed, the water they use is collected rainwater. All liquid and solid effluents are treated to meet the highest standards and are re-used onsite. In fact, this factory was recently evaluated as carbon-negative, which means they are removing more carbon from the environment than they are producing.

The kit includes:

  • two skeins of Laneras Deseos (DK superwash 50% Polwarth/50% Corriedale, 237 yards = 100g)
  • removable hat tag
  • Earth Friendly Stripes pattern

The pattern includes links to my favorite tutorials for a folded hem and helical stripes. I've also included an option to skip the folded hem, but I strongly encourage you to try it and potentially learn something new.

This yarn is so beautiful; with it’s slight variations in color it looks so rich!! I’m using my kit to make the Soundtrack Cowl and will need more for the hat. This yarn would also make a beautiful scarf.

Weekend Knit

The Earth Friendly Stripes hat was a fun weekend knit. I loved learning the hemming trick and will definitely use that again.

Hats Off to You for the Perfect Hat Pattern

The moment I cast on for this hat I was in love! Actually, the moment I opened my package and saw the beautiful colors and how they worked so well together is where it all began! There are very clear instructions for the skills needed to work the folded hem, The corrugated ribbing is an interesting feature and more fun and easier than it looks! But when it came to the Helical Stripes I asked myself there this simple technique has been all my knitting life! Knitting this hat is addictive! The yarn is absolutely amazing and you just want to keep going and going! Great pattern, wonderful Laneras yarn!
