Pam Allen

In collaboration with Quince founder Pam Allen, we created the Front Line Top-Down Hat to honor those on the front lines of healthcare. Knit in our soft sport-weight Chickadee, this simple garter stitch hat works up quickly from the top-down. Knit it for the front line hero in your family or community, or donate it to a charity of your choice. Let this small offering of thanks be the catalyst for paying it forward this holiday season. 

The Front Line Top-Down Hat is available only as a pattern pdf + yarn bundle.
