About now, panic may be setting in. There’s really so much to do and only a very short time to do it - shopping, wrapping, dinners to plan and cook, visits from family and friends, cards to write...

The thing I say to myself right about now is, “All this will never get done.” But yet, somehow, each year, by holiday magic or the spirit of the season or the sheer kindness of humanity at this special time, it does!

If you’re feeling a bit stressed at the moment, the good news is that knitting is the answer. Really...it's been scientifically proven!

And we have just the thing -- reducing holiday stress + crossing some people off your gift list.

It's hats! They’re quick and satisfying, and in String’s cashmere and cashmere blends, most luxurious.

And if you can’t knit them before the holidays, you can wrap up the yarn with a note to promise to knit soon -- there’s still lots of winter left. Or you can give one to a knitter you know will love it.

We’ve chosen ten of them. They’re our absolute favorites.

Cables? ✅ Got those.

Colorwork? ✅ Yup, those too!

Minimalist? ✅ Uh huh…

We know you'll find one or two that you love, too.

And this week and next, they’re all 15% off.
Just enter code HAT2017 at checkout.

All kits include yarn + pattern.

Hi – I purchased 2 skeins of Tahki yard & pompom yesterday at the Vogue Knitting Show. No pattern for hat was included in package. This was
the hat on display at show. Would you please send the pattern so I can purchase the needles and get a start this weekend on the hat. Thanks you – Nancy McNeilly
