Yesterday, I offered up one of my patterns for free in memory of my dear friend Linda who passed away Nov. 6th from cancer and as part of the Podcaster Throwdosn (For more info visit: knottygirlsknitcast)
This pattern is supposed to be for Halos of Hope, so you are on scouts honor to make one for them and send it in as part of the contest.
Send it to:
(your name) & Team Knotty Girls Knit Cast
564 South Murphy Ave
Sunnyvale, CA 94086
If you are making a hat from my pattern, please be sure to say you are on team Knotty Girls Knit Cast since they are teaming up with us on our Passport Game (stay tuned for more on that!)
Anyway, due to the overhearing response in this hat pattern (over 250 downloads since yesterday) I am taking it off Ravelry and putting it in a safe place. My email has been inundated!
If you want the pattern for free (this is only available until February 20th, 2014, btw) you can get it here:
Scouts honor that you will make at least one hat from this pattern for the cause!
Note, if you are making this hat according to the pattern, it meets all of Halos guidelines.
Hat guidelines for Halos:
- New, unworn
- Washable (acrylic, cotton or very soft superwash wool)
- “Soft” means comfort to a bald head
- Cottons are an excellent choice.
- If the cap contains any wool, please label the cap; some people have wool sensitivity.
- Hats made with thinner yarns and fabrics are ideal for summer.
- Fleece, heavier yarns and fabrics are great for late fall and winter.
- Scarves and turbans are also needed. Cotton knits are an excellent choice.
- Sleep caps are also needed. Best when seamless or soft-seamed, and made from thinner, lightweight yarns or lightweight fabrics
- Halos of Hope recommends hats with a circumference of 15” – 21”, with some men’s hats being 22” max.
