With all the struggles in Haiti, it can seem overwhelming to find a way to connect, to give help. Being a knitter, my first thought is always to knit something, but Haiti is a tropical enough country that woolens aren’t needed. What is needed is a long list of medicines, food, water, and supplies for shelters.

But because I’m a knitter, I wanted to come up with a small way to encourage other knitters to give. We knitters are a tremendously generous bunch, so I knew it wouldn’t take much – enter the Helping Haiti Hat Pattern.

This pattern, perfect for anyone who is ready to knit on circulars and is willing to test out their cabling skills (read: even a beginner can tackle this hat without much trouble!), is available for free to anyone who has donated money to help out the relief efforts in Haiti.
