Crochetville is also honoring Halos of Hope as the blog tour's charity project, and they're hoping to spread the word to get as many hats donated to them as possible this month. For all the information you need to donate a hat or make a charitable contribution, please see this post on Crochetville's blog.
In light of the Halos of Hope charity drive, we've elected once again to feature a hat pattern for this event. (Note: Did you miss last year's post? You'll want to check out our free fedora pattern.)
We actually had this pattern planned before we were invited to do the tour again, but we decided it was just perfect for this event! A charity hat drive must have a crochet hat pattern, right? But we took this pattern one step further this year and included matching neck warmers, ear warmers, and wrist warmers.
Plus, they are all made in the super warm thermal crochet stitch, so you'll want to check out our thermal stitch tutorial before you download the pattern.
We chose Cascade 220 Superwash Sport for this pattern, because wool is famous for its warmth and water-repellent properties and we wanted to use these accessories out in the snow. But if you're going to be making this hat for Halos of Hope, we'd recommend substituting Cascade Cherub Aran, as it's much softer against the sensitive skin of chemo patients. Both yarns available in our Etsy shop, Crochet Kitten's Bazaar.
The pattern is available now in our Ravelry store.
Thank you for visiting, everyone! Stay warm.
