When Robin Armstrong contacted me about this wonderful charity hat knitting event, I was honored to design and write a hat pattern for the Arkansas Children’s Hospital. She told me she had been trying to come up with a way to knit a helicopter hat. I said I wasn’t sure I would make a helicopter hat for the design, but I would be sure to come up with something cute! In fact, I originally knitted a different hat for ACH, but that helicopter hat idea stuck in my head. Then as I watched my four kids fishing off a pier one beautiful sunny August day, I knitted this helicopter hat. It was such a peaceful setting that I became overwhelmed with happiness as I knit this little hat. The helicopter hat is pure fun, and I
knew it was meant to be for Knitting for Noggins! I hope this hat gives peace and happiness to its recipients and families.
