Towanda Hat
(for those  Idgie Threadgoode days,of which there are many)
Most days, these days, I find myself in one of two positions:  fetal or fighting. 
 Both are exhausting…Knitting calls me in from the ledge.  I wish for you many peaceful and strengthening hours with this project. I love to think of all of you kick ass women knitting away.  Onward.
Sizes:  Bad to the Bone Baby, Wild Child, Awesome Women-medium and large.
Yarn: 2 - 1 oz/120 yds  Pacolet Valley Heather or Southern Bales Fingering Baby Cakes: directions refer to 1 solid & 
1 long run color-way but you can also use: 2 solids, 1 solid & 1 variegated, or lots of different colors of fingering weight yarn. Making sure to have enough contrast between foreground and background is essential to having the designs show up and stand out.  It takes 2 ounces/240 yards to complete. If you like, the dotted chart (page 3) can be an can be  colored in (adult beverages help)  before knitting...or not.  The only goal is not to go insane. 
Charts: dotted charts, shaded charts, colored charts are intended to help you “see” the patterns, find the one that works for you.
Needles: size 2/ 16 in circular, size 2 double pointed (dpn)
Gauge: 8.5 stitches to the inch, 9 rows to the inch … this is all relative to your tension, state of mind, political party, presence of  children, etc.
Know How: The technique of stranded knitting is addicting used in this pattern.  To help with this, if you like, we have: 1 minute, two hands, no cats or strolls around the property, straight up “show me how” videos here:http://www.stonyhillfiberarts.com/KnittingVideos.html
