December Year of Bulky Hats KAL

gather here Classes

Remember the Year of Mittens, Hats, and Gifts? It was ages ago, before the pandemic. Good news though, we're gonna knit bulky hats in 2022! And we want to help you explore all kinds of knitting techniques by hosting a Year of Bulky Hats KAL all year long.

The Knox hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. The shell lace used in the pattern is a garter based stitch, and the pattern tends to elongate widthwise. As a result, stitches are decreased for the pattern after the brim is worked. Integrated decreases shape the crown, and as with all other “Year Of…” patterns, a pom pom tops it off.

Because we want maximum participation we are having a little contest. Join us for all 12 KAL’s, complete all 12 hats, and you will WIN a bag of Kelbourne Woolen’s Germantown Bulky in the color way of your choice! Plus other cool stuff. What? You don’t need 12 hats? Well there are lots of people that could use a hat in New England. So make that hat and we’ll make sure it goes to someone in need.

Limited to 6 students (17 yrs of age or older)
  • Level:  Advanced Beginner - Intermediate (you know how to knit, purl, cast on and cast off.)
  • We provide: moral support and great company
