The New Hope Hat has been designed as response to the refugee crisis engulfing Europe during 2015. Many, many migrants have lost their lives at sea trying to reach the safety of European shores. I have designed this hat to raise money for the work of MOAS (the Migrant Offshore Aid Station) http://www.moas.eu/
The only expenses that I’ll take from this are Ravelry and PayPal fees.

New Hope Hat is a textured Aran weight hat in a chevron pattern, that uses twisted knit and non twisted purl stitches to give a textured effect.

The hat instructions are both fully charted and fully written.
