Sisters United Socks Knit Kit

Made by The Wandering Flock

$55.00 – 83.00

16 in stock

These cozy boot socks are quick to whip up, warm and cozy to wear. We love the way the bold colorwork pattern looks in speckled, hand-dyed yarns by The Wandering Flock and Hedgehog Fibres or in solid, high-twist Haven by Shibui. All of these yarn options will result in some super soft socks! The pattern is written for women's size 7, but can be adjusted to fit any length foot for all genders. This delightful design by Caitlin Hunter of Boyland Knits is a great intro to both socks and colorwork, so if you're new to either, welcome! These socks are perfect for the adventurous beginner. Our kit includes the yarn and pattern. If you need needles, please add those to your purchase.

The pattern included in this kit raises money for the non-profit Sisters United organization. Sisters United is a community based initiative supported by fellow makers to raise money to support organizations that are dedicated to Native American Women. Due to trans generational trauma, cultural genocide, and colonization, Native women are one of the most at risk minorities in the United States for domestic violence, rape, murder, human trafficking, health related problems, suicide, and drug abuse. We believe that a spark of change in a community begins with strong women and positive family foundations. Our goal is to bring a small offering of financial substance to programs who support Native Women, Youth, and Communities. Sisters United pledges to do the ground work for these issues, including bringing education and awareness on their platforms and working with local Human Trafficking and MMIW task force.
