"Sollicitude" is knit flat then, leaving the stitches on both ends of the piece live, blocked. Stitches are picked up on one long-side and closed up to fold the piece, and a small I-Cord loop is created. A length of I-cord is made and then strung through the live stitches, through the I-Cord loop and tied, creating the hat!
"Sollicitude" is French for "concern". One of my greatest passions (concerns) is to support and speak with and for people with disAbilities. My goal is to try and make some difference through my design work. Therefore, 50% of all proceeds made from selling this pattern will be donated to an organisation close to my heart - International China Concern (ICC).
