A Halos of Hope Designer Invitational Pattern.

We thank Kristin Omdahl, and Styled by Kristin, for her inaugural contribution to this series.

As Kristin says, “I am a proud of my Norwegian heritage and enjoy joking with my fellow Scandinavian friends and family about our tough, Viking prowess. One particular friend and I joke about who has the better sense of direction due to our internal Norse Celestial Navigation systems. Inspired by celestial navigation, I designed an 8-point star into the crown of this crochet hat to symbolize the homing device in all of us. Make this hat for yourself, or more importantly, make it for loved ones with the hope that it will always help them find their way home to you.”

More information about the pattern from Kristin’s blog. Includes how to modify for all sizes of children, women and men.
