This darling hat is a very quick knit. A simple four strand cable works its way into a heart and stands out on a reverse stockinette exterior. Instructions to alter the pattern for a stockinette exterior are included.

My daughter saw a story on the news about a little girl named Millie suffering from Leukemia. She asked if we could do something for her. We decided to send her a care package and included the first “Millie” hat as a chemo hat. I designed this hat specifically for her. There are four members of her family represented by the four strands of the cable, bound together, and the heart is a sign of their love for each other. Their story is blogged about here.
