4.A Special Thank You to the bus riders who knit up 49 Mini Caps! Awesome job! We will be collecting more of the minis for about 1 more month. However, if you were on the bus, you also
received a pattern for an adult version. We will collect those at the in-store retreat in Oct. For every 2 adult hats you bring to the retreat, your name will go into a drawing for $15 credit at mass ave. We will hold a drawing every day during the retreat.

Here is the adult hat pattern for those who were not on the bus:
