The worldwide Harriet’s Hat Knit along organised by the Minnesota Knitters Guild, which began last month on the 8th June, comes to an end on the 20th July. We’re incredibly grateful that Kathy got in touch and set it up, it has without doubt helped boost pattern sales around the globe.
The 20th July deadline also brings with it a prize draw for those who have posted their finished hat pictures on the ravelry forum thread – Harriet’s Hat KAL for the Shetland MRI Scanner. For those who like a chance to win, there’s still time to download the Harriet’s Hat pattern and post a finished picture. It must be posted on the ravelry thread to be entered in the draw.
There have been many posted already, with many colour work variations, all knitted using Harriet’s pattern, from various countries. They were all cast on in various locations, including at 35000ft on a plane to Hawaii, and during a break between sending patients for an MRI Scan in Vista, California. Some people have even made 2 or more since the KAL began on World Wide Knit in Public Day.
Some of the people taking part in the KAL are actually coming here to Shetland for Shetland Wool Week, so we’re really looking forward to seeing them in person!
To say thanks to everyone who has taken part, we’re putting together this gallery to showcase their works of art. With 2 weeks left to go, there will likely be more but we’ll add them here as they come in. Some of you may have seen these already across social media with the hashtag #harrietshat.
