Queen Bee Hat by Sari Nordlund

Why the collaboration with Annabel Williams?

After a long Instagram crush and falling in love with her minimalistic and modern design aesthetic, I decided to approach Sari. We spent a little time chatting, soon discovering we had a mutual love for contemporary design and traditional crafts. I suggested a collaboration and from there Sari created a beautiful pair of socks which began a woolly friendship.

Inspired to work with Sari again, I asked her to design a pattern as a gift to my supportive subscribers.

The Queen Bee is a clever, easy to understand hat pattern. I couldn’t be happier with it and I hope you love it as much as I do!

I make naturally dyed, gorgeous, ethically sourced yarn. For me, it’s important to know the origins of your purchases; that way you can make informed choices, so traceability is at the heart of what I do. My yarns are breed specific, sourced from farms that go above and beyond caring for their flocks with the best possible practices.

Sari Nordlund lives in Finland. She conserves museum furniture for a living, and spends most of her free time knitting. She loves knitting cables, good quality coffee and cats, not necessarily in that order. Sari’s work has been published in Pom Pom Quarterly and Laine magazine.
