This year the MKAL is a little different - there are 2 Hat styles to choose from, and you buy either Hat A or Hat B, or buy them as a joint eBook. Further more, if you buy one then decide to buy the other, Ravelry's special bundle feature means you'll only pay the difference.

This MKAL will be held in the Woolly Wormhead's Hats group on Ravelry - any and all questions relating to this MKAL and it's patterns are answered there. I'm afraid I'm unable to offer help via email or social media for this event.

Installment dates:
Pt. 1 – 1st November
Pt. 2 – 8th November
Pt. 3 – 15th November
Pt. 4 - 22nd November
Final pattern release – 29th November
