This pattern is available for free.

Simple top down Umbilical Cord hats made with two 8ply or DK yarns held together.
Variation without the cord explained.
Knitted in the round with DPNs or magic loop.

This is the first of a series of hats that I have whipped together which sell really well at markets. The next few will include a snail summer hat and a snail beanie, other easy knits and good sellers.

Yes, go for it, knit them, sell them.

Please if you do make some to sell, send one to Craft For a Cause to help raise funds for Ayla, a little girl who has Polymicrogyria and Cerebral Palsy.
Her parents are raising funds for a foundation called Ayla’s Rainbow Foundation to pay for Ayla’s medical costs, equipment, house and car modifications and schooling, as well as help out other children/families in similar situations.
Please send completed hats to 29 Ben Nevis Street, Mt Tamborine, QLD 4272, Australia or visit and buy up big at the etsy store.
