WorldPride 2021 is hosted by Copenhagen. On this occasion, we are launching our Pride Color Pack, encouraging our amazing community to create awareness about Pride and LGBTQIA+ issues.

As a Danish-based company, we are very proud to be part of a culture that emphasizes inclusion, diversity, and equality. In the spirit of Pride, we have teamed up with InterPride - the owner of the WorldPride brand, and a global LGBTQIA+ organization founded to empower Pride organizations worldwide 🌍


The Pride Color Pack is a 12-pack Rainbow Cotton 8/4 yarn, including two skeins of each Pride color 🧶 With this, we want to inspire you to celebrate Pride by making a statement through colorful yarn projects. Love is for everyone, and so is Hobbii ❤️ Therefore, we are proud to share that Hobbii will donate 8% of the Pride Color Pack sold to InterPride’s Solidarity Fund to support those struggling in hostile or challenging regions for LGBTQIA+ communities. At the end of this blog post, we share some simple and beautiful rainbow patterns to inspire your Pride projects 🌈

                                                            Want to add fringes? Do like this: 


                                                            Step 1: With the color purple, cut 50 strands of 25 cm (approx 9,8 inches).

                                                              Step 2: Grab 5 of the strands and fold them in half. 

                                                                Step 3: Pull the strands halfway through the very last ch at the end of the scarf, so you have a loop on one side and the tails of the strands on the other. 

                                                                  Step 4: Grab the tails and thread them through the loop and pull to create the fringe.

                                                                    Step 5: Repeat this step with the last purple strands, creating 5 bunches of fringes on each end of the scarf. Then repeat with the other colors.

                                                                      Step 6: Trim the fringes to desired length. 


                                                                      Your scarf is now complete! 🧣
