A few months ago I was introduced to Ashely at The Shine Project through another blog. I was instantly blown away - what an amazing woman who is doing amazing things!

Ashley began The Shine Project to help send a few high school students off to college by raising money using her blog and some seriously inspirational and motivational posting skills! Now The Shine Project is becoming an official charitable organization with a board of directors and even bigger dreams for the future!

Ashley is super inspiring, and I wanted to create something to share my excitement at what she’s doing. Enter The Shine Hat.

This fun hat can be made as slouchy or as fitted as you want, and while the stitches and construction are simple enough, the overall effect is fun and different. I used Patons wool for the hat pictured above, but I’ll be sharing a few more hats made with this pattern soon, and for each I used a different combination of worsted weight wools just to see how versatile this pattern is - I’m happy to report you can substitute in just about any worsted weight wool and as long as you get gauge, you should be good to go!
