Spun Fundraiser for the ACLU of Michigan
Designed by Andrea Rangel and knit by Juie H. in BC Garn Bio Shetland
Until the end of October 2022, Spun will be donating 10% of sales
of the Dissent Toque kit to the ACLU of Michigan.
Andrea Rangel’s Dissent Toque is a pattern inspired by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her tradition of wearing a distinctive, ornate collar on days when she gave powerful and pointed opinions at odds with the Supreme Court's majority. The stranded colorwork hat honors RBG’s lifelong fight for justice. The Dissent Toque is available in 5 sizes and has instructions for both beanie and slouchy versions (our sample is the latter). There is enough yarn in each kit to make multiple hats so you can outfit friends and family with this beautiful accessory that serves as a powerful reminder of one of the most inspiring figures in American legal history. As the designer says, “Here’s to Justice Ginsburg. May her memory be a blessing.”
