Our “not afraid of anything” toques are a hat any Browncoat could love. We use our own a pattern similar to the one used on our favourite cancelled show. Our hats do not have the long pointed top. Instead, they are rounded and based off a toque design. They are double-knit for warmth in a Canadian climate. Our colours are also different than ones made in the south as we do not have access to the yarn brands and colours available in the US.
The “not afraid of anything” toques are a major fundraiser for the Alberta Browncoats Society and go a long way to helping us reach our phenomenal charitable donation totals ($42,000 since 2009). The proceeds from our hat sales help pay upfront costs for our charity fundraising events (e.g. convention booths, merchandise) and remaining profits from sales are split between Kids Need to Read, Edmonton’s Youth Empowerment and Support Services (YESS), and local Albertan not-for-profit groups.
Local (Edmonton) and not so local browncoat knitters are making the world a shinier place by donating completed hats to fundraising activites.
Want to help out? Join our knitting army. We have developed a generic toque pattern which suits our winter weather while declaring the wearer “not afraid of anything”! In addition, we provide yarn free to all local volunteer knitters upon request. Send us a wave if you’re interested in learning more about joining our knitting army.
