Penn State Pride

Our company is located in Bristol, Pennsylvania.  We are local sports fans and show our pride throughout our offices and warehouse.  On January 22, Penn State University lost their ” winningest coach”  Joe Paterno to lung cancer.  In honor of  “JoePa’s” career, that spanned 61 years at the school, we wanted to share this pattern with you as it was originally designed with Penn State in mind.

    Thank You, Allison for the kind words about Joe Paterno. He not only is a member of my husband’s family, but a wonderful man who loved what he did and made such a positive impact on so many people. The Encore Team Hat and Scarf is a terrific set and I’m sure all our fellow knitters will enjoy making it!
