I will be donating all proceeds from sale of my patterns on Ravelry this summer (and perhaps beyond) to human rights groups. I don’t sell many patterns, but this is the least I can do. June and July sales will go to RAICES. I will note donated totals on my Francie sock pattern, as that is the only pattern that usually generates any sales.

The ribbed chevron patterning in this hat is created through symmetrically placed increases and decreases. The ribbing makes it nice and clingy, and the chevron patterning gently scallops the brim, so that it follows the contours of the wearer’s head and face.

This hat is not difficult to knit. It is mostly knits and purls, with a variety of types of increases and decreases to create the patterning. An adventurous beginner who is willing to learn new types of increases and decreases should be able to knit this hat, though the shaping should help keep the attention of a more experienced knitter, too.

Thank you to everyone who bought Francie, 1989, and Smoke Signals January 16 - February 28, 2010! Your purchases allowed me to donate $1098 to Doctors Without Borders as part of the Help in Haiti project.
