interior knit and crochet community
In fall 2022, Calypso Farm and Ecology Center started a community drive to provide hats to the Fairbanks Community. Calypso Farm designed a pattern, wound their own yarn and put together kits for making hats to donate to The Bread Line in Fairbanks, Alaska for distribution. The idea really took off! To help meet the demand for kits, Yarn Over and IKCC are teaming up with Calypso to continue to provide more kits to knitters. IKCC’s Cathie Harms has developed a free pattern for worsted weight yarn and Sasha Dixon at Yarn Over is holding “winding parties” to make kits.
Want to get involved? Drop off wool/wool blend worsted weight yarn at Yarn Over for winding, or download the pattern, knit yarn from your stash and drop off the hat instead! You can also pick up a kit at Yarn Over.
