Celebrate 30 years of Cascade yarns! 

The first square is live!  This is the first square of the 30 square Knitterati Blanket.  The  blanket commemorates Cascade Yarns’ 30th anniversary.  The 30 squares will be released throughout 2017 as part of the mystery knit along.

Cascade Yarns will be making a donation to Haiti Babi https://haitibabi.org/ equal to the amount that it receives from Ravelry for the sale of this pattern.  Haiti Babi, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, is dedicated to training and employing struggling mothers in Haiti.  Rather than merely providing a meal or housing, Haiti Babi provides training and jobs to moms in Haiti so they can earn a sustainable living wage, provide for their children, and keep their families together.  We encourage you to visit Haiti Babi’s website and to learn more about their cause.  In Haiti, one in ten kids lives in an orphanage, and 80% of kids in orphanages have a parent, or parents, who simply cannot afford to care for them.
