6 Days Until World Wide Knit Along Begins

Harriet's Hat Pattern CoverWith just 6 days left until the World Wide Knit Along of Harriet’s Hat being organised by the Minnesota Knitters Guild gets underway, we hope you’ve got your pattern downloaded and have selected your yarn.

If you’ve not got your pattern yet, we would ask you to get it in plenty of time to avoid a last minute run on the server and any resulting problems. It’s available to download from the online store here – Harriet’s Hat Pattern. If there is a last minute rush and you don’t get it in time, don’t worry too much, the deadline for cast on pictures posted on the Ravelry Thread for a prize draw is the 15th. However the aim is to get as many people casting on Harriet’s Hat on the 8th as possible, from all around the globe.

Full details of the Harriet’s Hat KAL can be found on the Minnesota Knitter’s Guild on their website – Harriet’s Hat KAL – and we’re very grateful to them for coming up with the idea and encouraging everyone, regardless of where they’re from or what knitting groups they’re involved with to take part.

Pictures of finished hats should be posted to the same Ravelry thread for inclusion in the completed hat prize draw by the 20th.

If you’re part of a knitting group, guild or a collection of friends/family all joining in together, why not meet up and send pictures of your big cast on with details of where you’re from etc. to our facebook page, instagram, or twitter accounts. Harriet herself will be meeting up with anyone who wants to and lives near enough, details to follow. There’s this Harriet’s Hat Worldwide KAL event page for facebook users to join and share too.

Thanks to everyone who is supporting our efforts, every contribution, whatever it is, brings us one step closer.
