HYS Hat Club: Quarter 2!

The HYS Hat Club continues, and we’re opening it up for Quarter 2 signups!

HYS Hat Club is a subscription of thoughtfully curated hat projects for knitters, pairing yarns and patterns to keep you entertained all year long. Each quarter includes three hat projects (one per month), and a few other surprises along the way.

HYS Hat Club, October 2020 – “Gault,” by Jared Flood, 2 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Arbor, and a sample of Brooklyn Tweed Dapple.

Patterns: Expect patterns from a variety of designers, using all kinds of techniques, including cables and other texture patterns, stranded colorwork, mosaic knitting, marling, and more. 

Fiber: We love the elasticity of wool for hat-making, so there’ll be plenty of it, and all kinds, sometimes blended with other fibers, like cashmere, cotton, mohair, or silk.

Gauge: The yarns will vary in gauge, from fingering weight up to bulky. 

Color: Choose from four color palettes – warm, cool, neutral, and surprise; select a second palette if you’d like a bit more variety throughout the quarter.

Price, terms, and timing: 

Cost for HYS Hat Club Quarter 2, local pickup option: $150

Cost for HYS Hat Club Quarter 2, USPS shipping option: $174

Prepay for the first quarter by Saturday, December 19th, and expect an email early in January letting you know that your first HYS Hat Club order is ready for pickup or shipping. All HYS Hat Club sales are final, no returns or exchanges; discounts do not apply.

  • Quarter 2: January, February, March
