What is a hatalong? Every other month, or so, Karen Templar of Fringe Association hosts an online knit-along with a new FREE hat pattern. These fun patterns are quick knits that provide great tips and tricks to learn new techniques.
Next week, on October 29th, she'll release the 5th pattern in this series and she has hinted that it involves cables! What a fun way to try your hand at reading a chart or cabling without a needle.
She has indicated that the pattern calls for a single skein of the Fibre Co.'s Cumbria.
"It’s a worsted-weight blend of 60% Merino, 30% Masham and 10% Mohair. Merino, of course, is incredibly soft. Masham is a British longwool that’s a natural light grey, which creates really beautiful, muted colors when it’s overdyed. And the Mohair gives it a nice bloom when it’s blocked. So it’s a yarn with loads of touchability as well as great stitch definition."
We have a mouthwatering selection Cumbria in stock. We hope that you can pop in before the pattern is released next week, so that you can participate in this knit along. Give us a call if you'd like us to send a skein to you so you won't miss out.
We can all cast on over Halloween weekend and share our progress via Facebook and Instagram with #fringehatalong!
