When I was given the opportunity to knit a hat for Halos of Hope, I immediately thought of my friend Donna, who battled cancer for many years. A percentage of all sales for this pattern go to Halos of Hope. For more information on their mission, go to http://www.halosofhope.org/.
This pattern is not currently on the Windy Valley page. This should be fixed shortly but in the meantime, a hard copy can be purchased at firstname.lastname@example.org.
