This is a sample hat for my Louisa Harding Charity Event on October 5, 2012 at Knitique, in Elk Grove, CA to raise funds for Louisa’s charity, Macmillan Cancer Support. You can read the details on my blog:

I love this hat! If you can knit and purl you can make it! I love it’s boutique look with Louisa’s trademark rosette and button flower. This hat makes a perfect gift knit because you knit it in just a few days time. I can’t wait to make more!

Cheering on Louisa…

I’m supporting designer Louisa Harding as she undertakes the Macmillan Nepal Hiking Challenge November 1 - 11th, 2012 to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Louisa is designing a series of seven Himalayan Hiking Hat patterns to help her fundraising effort. Her personal aim is to have her photo taken wearing one of the hats on each day of the seven day hiking trek. The seventh hat she will actually knit on the hike itself.

I’ve also organized a Himalayan Hiking Hats Knit-Along in the Louisa Harding group…won’t you join me and support Louisa in her incredible endeavor.

December 2014 Update: I love this hat pattern and have modified it to fit a toddler. Knit on circular needles: I cast on 80 stitches and knit to 7” before I began the decrease section. I also did French knots for the flower center in lieu of a button since it is for a little girl. See last two photos.
