The pattern for the hat I made my brother for Christmas is now available in the shop.Enjoy!
I made another so that I could work out all the pattern details (I made the first in a rush on Christmas eve). It tried to eat my head! The ribbing ends up folded in half but it still ended up much too big for me. Which I’m glad I discovered since it gave me a much better idea of how much negative ease to incorporate into the pattern.
We have enjoyed seeing people's Joy mitts on Ravelry and Instagram and although the kits are nearly sold out now, it is a pattern that can be done in many different colours, depending on what flag/colour scheme you want to use.
We have made genderqueer, asexual, non-binary and pansexual flag charts.
Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.
Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
