PATTERN DETAILS

Kepler is inspired by one of my favourite tramps in New Zealand, the Kepler Track in the stunning Fiordland National Park. Kepler is a simple and practical unisex beanie for everyday wear and an easy introduction to beanies for the beginner. 50% of Kepler pattern sales will be donated to the inspiring Kids Restore The Kepler pest trapping project. It is exciting to see the children get involved and take responsiblity for "their patch". Construction Kepler is written as a beanie and slouch beanie, knit in the round from the brim upwards. The brim is a 2 x 2 rib stitch, followed by a knit and purl stitch pattern that travels through the body to the crown. The pattern is written for DK and worsted weight yarn, and 7 - 10 sizes. You will need to know how to work small circumferences in the round. If you do not know how to do this you may need to reference a knitting book or online tutorial. I am very excited about the kids restore the kepler project and here is a blurb from their site www.kidsrestorethekepler.co.nz "Imagine a 3000 hectare prime piece of habitat made safe for NZ birds, insects, lizards and bats. Imagine a brilliant reserve that happens to also be one of Aotearoa's Great Walks. And now imagine that the driving force behind this remarkable restoration project is the next generation of New Zealanders! Kids Restore the Kepler is a major conservation project with a difference. As well as having conservation goals seeking to restore birdsong in the area, the project also has a strong education focus. The project aims to help Fiordland's young people, from pre-school through to college, develop knowledge, values and skills so they can be confident, connected and actively involved in caring for their environment. Working in conjunction with partners, sponsors, businesses and the community, Fiordland's young people intend to be the kids who restore the Kepler!"
