In the wake of the Marathon Bombings one month ago, pattern designer Lisa McFetridge took to her needles.  Lisa is a wonderful, Boston-based knitting teacher and designer, whose charming Ravelry patterns and kind heart have made me smile.

This thoughtful hat pattern features a star for each person lost, the Boston skyline, the date of the Marathon and the words “Boston Strong”.   It is available for purchase for just $3.50, and every dollar collected will be donated to the One Fund.  I am happy to say that hard copies are currently available in-store here at Sage Yarn, and you can also purchase directly from Lisa via Ravelry.

If you are nervous about colorwork but really, really want to make this hat, I’ll be happy to help you get going for free.  Please shoot me (Jen) an email at info@sageyarn.com and we’ll pick a time to sit down together.
