With the purchase of this pattern you are supporting the charity MASFD. 100% of the sales are offered to this cause from November 1st to 30th.

“Premières Neiges” means “First Snow” in French. I was inspired for this design by that magical moment when the first snow flakes fall from the sky, slowly turning our world to a wonderland of Winter white.

The hat is a bit on the slouchy side and can be worn back with your bangles showing or deep on your head and ears to fight a true snow storm! It will easily accomodate long hair in any kind of do.

The pattern is both lacy and textured. Worked in DK weight, it will fly off your needles in no time and is perfect for a last minute gift!

WHAT is l’écheveau solidaire / 
The supportive Skein ?
Each month, a new indie designer or an indie dyer create a pattern and/or dye a specific yarn with proceeds that will go towards a charity called (MASFD). The charity’s goal is to raise money for medical research to fight Fibrous Dysplasia, which is a rare genetic disorder affecting the bones.
That way, they give you the opportunity to help the charity through knitting, a small but indispensable gesture to fight an incurable disease.
All the proceeds from the pattern will go towards the charity!

WHY this cause ?
Gaïa is the daughter of Lili, a french knitter who lives in Bordeaux.
Gaïa has a rare disease called Mc Cune Albright Syndrome and one of the numerous symptoms is Fibrous Dysplasia. She sadly has a severe form of the syndrome and had to undertake 4 surgeries already.
Lili hopes Gaïa will be able to walk one day, go to school or simply live her childhood happily. She’s ready to do everything to help her daughter, that’s why she founded the MASFD « Fight Fibrous Dysplasia » charity « MASFD : Vaincre la Dysplasie Fibreuse » in order to help finding a cure for this disease.

’The supportive Skein’ is the first operation from MASFD.
Let’s help her fight Mc Cune Albright Syndrome by raising a grant and find a cure to Fibrous Dysplasia !

Avec votre achat, vous financez la recherche médicale concernant la dysplasie fibreuse des os, maladie génétique rare et incurable aujourd’hui. Les benefices du patron seront reversés à l’association MASFD du 1er au 30 novembre 2019.

Le bonnet Premières Neiges est inspiré par les premiers flocons de neige que l’on regarde tomber avec émerveillement par la fenêtre… Légers au début, leur taille augmente progressivement et le paysage devient tout blanc : l’hiver est là, plus de doute !

C’est un bonnet un peu slouchy, qui se porte légèrement en arrière de la lisière des cheveux mais qui vous permettra de couvrir le front et les oreilles en cas de franc blizzard! Il accueillera aussi confortablement les cheveux attachés.

Le motif allie mailles ajourées et texture. C’est un projet en laine DK, rapide à tricoter, parfait pour de petits cadeaux de dernière minute !
