Pattern for a slightly slouchy adult hat, with ‘FUCK THE TORIES’ in colourwork just above the brim.

I designed the hat in the wake of the 2019 general election. It is a charity hat - that is, all money raised from sales of this pattern support the setting up and maintaining of a ‘free food’ garden in my small village, Hill of Fearn in the Scottish Highlands. In 2020 I am going to build a small ‘free food’ garden for my local community on a bit of my land by the side of our lane - c. 1.50x3m. Sales of this pattern support materials needed for this, and - if enough money is raised - allow me to kit out a nearby shed and put up a small polytunnel for use of the community.

Please note that I am also selling knitted hats made from this pattern, for £15 minimum donation. You are very welcome to do the same. Please get in touch with me if you’d like to discuss this further!
