Lancaster Yarn Shop is in the heart of Amish country in Lancaster County, PA. We are surrounded by Amish farms & the ubiquitous wash lines which sometimes are hung with dresses and aprons in these traditional Amish colors. The scallop in this hat mirrors the scallop found on knit & crocheted afghans & is very like patterning found on 19th century Amish Wedding Socks.
