Social distancing is a quick and fun beanie in a bulky yarn featuring a simple cable pattern.
The lines formed by the cables start one next to the other, then open up to a safe distance in the body of the hat, to meet again on the top, when the danger is over to form a beautiful swirl shape together.
And this is what I hope for everyone: we are now in the middle of a painful distancing, but everything will end in a beautiful way!



This hat is free, but I ask you to donate something to your local charity, if possible. There’s a lot of people experiencing difficulties in this moment and I think that it’s very important to do what is in our possibilities to help.
