Katie's Kep is the hat pattern for Shetland Wool Week 2020. Unfortunately the festival is not going ahead but you still knit your hat, or this year your kep. This pattern is Wilma Malcolmson's tribute to her mother who was a professional knitter of Shetland, a group who kept the Shetland colourwork and lace knitting heritage alive and vibrant. This tradition goes back centuries and I'm sure you will agree with us that it is one of the most exciting strands of knitting heritage.
