Dissent Toque Kit

      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), and 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.”

      Each kit contains 2 skeins of BC Garn Bio Shetland (100% organic Shetland wool) in the color combination of your choice and the pattern for Dissent Toque which will make two (or more!) hats in either the beanie or slouchy style and in any of the 5 sizes from baby to adult large, with a brim circumference of 15.5” to 22.5”. We will purchase a copy of Dissent Toque for you via Ravelry, so you will automatically receive both a printed copy and an emailed PDF. If you would also like to have this pattern in your Ravelry library, please note your Ravelry ID (not your password!) in the "Notes" field in your cart!

      Please note that this kit does not include needles. We recommend a US2.5 16” and DPNs (or size needed to achieve gauge). You may also want an additional 16” needle in a US3 or US4 if your stranded colorwork tends to be tight. If you don't already have the appropriate needle at home, you can shop Spun's selection of circular needles here and DPNs here.

      If you'd like to make your kit a gift (for yourself or someone else), or if you just wish to keep your new project tidy and organized, add the Spun Rope Handle Bag with Pin to your order and we will package your purchase accordingly!
