"Katie's Kep" is the official beanie for the 2020 Shetland Wool Week. The beanie was designed by Wool Week Patron Wilma Malcolmson and named for her mother, Katie, who taught her how to knit at a very young age. The hat is a tribute to all the known and unknown designers who have kept Shetland colorwork traditions alive.

We've chosen some special colors for the hat that are very similar to Colour #3 shown in the Katie's Kep pattern. We are substituting Jamison & Smith 2-ply for Shetland Handspun, in a selection of Earth Tones for this yarn pack. 

You are also encouraged to come up with your own color scheme and post your pictures to the special Facebook Knit-a-Long group. All the information about Shetland Wool Week and a link to the free pattern download are available at https://www.shetlandwoolweek.com/free-knitting-pattern/
