This hat is being released to coincide with the anniversary of the motto, “Nevertheless, she persisted.” being born February 7, 2017. I designed this to celebrate all the strong, supportive women we call friends! Two mirrored cables, each half of a heart, wind up and around this hat making a squishy, warm gift for yourself or your BFF(s). Worked in a heavy worsted weight wool, like Malabrigo Worsted, makes it a quick knit, and the cables make sure you are never bored along the way.

Forever free so that you can knit one whenever you want to remember, “Nevertheless, she persisted.”

The Model
My beautiful friend Dr. Andrus agreed to model for this pattern. She is a survivor of a gun-related Domestic Violence incident that miraculously only claimed one eye. She is the epitome of “Nevertheless, she persisted” to me, going on to finish her doctorate degree and mothering her 3 gorgeous girls. If you’d like to comment, I will be sure to pass along any good wishes to this amazing woman!
