I recently lost a wonderful knitting friend of mine to breast cancer. She was such an inspiration to me both as a knitter and as a mother (she had/has 2 small kids). So when Kollage Yarns asked me to design a hat to benefit Breast Cancer Awareness I immediately knew what I would name the hat.
I would like to introduce you to one of my newest patterns Nicole’s Courage Hat.
