Inspired by true events, Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good story about Michael “Eddie” Edwards (Taron Egerton), an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself – even as an entire nation was counting him out. With the help of a rebellious and charismatic coach (played by Hugh Jackman), Eddie takes on the establishment and wins the hearts of sports fans around the world by making an improbable and historic showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. 

Our String #IKnitForEddie Hat can be made with Filatura Di Crosa’s Zara 8, 100% extrafine merino, or use our String Classica 100% cashmere yarn.

Support the #iKnitForEddie and #iCrochetForEddie campaign. Get the kit to knit your own hat AND enter our #IKnitForEddie giveaway on Ravelry for a chance to receive 2 tickets to the February 17th NY movie screening!

Movie premieres Feb. 26th. Watch the trailer: [HERE].
