This is a quick beanie, knit in the round, from the bottom up.

I am offering this pattern for free with the hope that each person who downloads it will make at least one blue hat for Hat Not Hate.

This hat is inspired by Jon Giswold, founder of Knit in the Pit, originally a local knitting group which became global through zoom. He started many messages to me with, “Hey there…,” and then would ask how I was, or ask if I could talk, or any number of things. But, it turned out he did that with everyone. He had the gift of making everyone feel like his best friend, like you were seen and important. He extended this focus and generosity to the wider community supporting Hat Not Hate, Knit the Rainbow and Soap S.A.C.K, along with many other organizations. I designed this hat with Hat Not Hate and Jon in mind; he loved bulky yarn, and seed stitch!
