UPDATE: Gimme Shelter – and keep giving to hurricane relief efforts! #IrmaRelief #HarveyRelief #GimmeShelter
We started the Gimme Shelter donation project when Hurricane Harvey hit Texas. Now, with months of rebuilding ahead following both Harvey and Irma, we’re extending our donation to the relief effort. Through the month of September we’re donating $10 per project to relief efforts in Texas, Florida, and the Carribean.
$10 donation for every Gimme Shelter Scarf Project
For each Gimme Shelter project purchased (pattern and 3 of skeins Victorian Boucle Mohair Yarn or 5+ balls of Jo Sharp Rare Comfort Kid Mohair Yarn) through Sunday, September 30th, Halcyon Yarn will donate $10 to hurricane relief efforts.
We’ll keep you posted on the progress – please help spread the word by sharing this post! #HarveyRelief #IrmaRelief #GimmeShelter
The Gimme Shelter - Hooded Scarf with Pockets is one of our favorite quick and easy knitting projects, perfect for keeping cozy as fall arrives. The pattern is available as a download or print copy. Knit in three skeins of Victorian Boucle Mohair Yarn, it’s lovely in a solid color. Or pick a mix of colors for a gradient or striped look. Here are a few of our favorite combinations:
Want something extra fluffy? Try it in Jo Sharp Rare Comfort Kid Mohair Yarn, using 5-6 balls.
