It’s the holiday season, which means it’s a good time for giving! This year, I teamed up with Knitter’s Pride and Knit Pro (their German equivalent) to design a free charity knitting pattern, the Triangle Rib Baby Hat. Now through January 5, Knitter’s Pride & Knit Pro are hosting a charity knit along with prizes to encourage folks to donate handmade items to those in need. More details and the free pattern are below!
About the charity knit & crochet along
Knitter’s Pride just kicked off their Fall/Winter Charity KCAL (knit & crochet along), and the Triangle Rib Baby Hat was designed for it. Since this is a KCAL for charity, you can of course knit the Triangle Rib Baby Hat or you can knit or crochet a different pattern you’ve been eager to try! Here’s more on the KCAL from Knitter’s Pride:
