This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

Note: This pattern is free on Ravelry until the end of my fundraiser for The Cupcake Girls, Bowl For Justice. During this time, please feel free to download the pattern and consider making a contribution to my fundraiser at:

After the fundraiser ends, I plan to make the pattern available for purchase, with $3.00 of each sale going as a donation to The Cupcake Girls.*

The‌ Give Two Ways ‌Hat‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ bulky weight ‌hat‌ in sizes baby through adult large.‌ ‌The 4 purl panels give the hat extra stretch to ensure a good fit, and the top features my favorite paired decreases for a nice X closure. There is a simple, one-color version, and three 2-color variations are given at the end of the pattern.

Buying this pattern allows you to give in two ways. It is versatile and quick-to-knit, perfect for a last-minute birthday or shower gift, or you can make a whole stack of them for holiday gifts or charity hats. In addition, once the pattern is available for purchase (it is currently free), $3.00 from every sale will be donated to The Cupcake Girls, a nonprofit organization that provides resources without judgment or agenda to people working in the adult industry. The Cupcake Girls play a critical role in providing aftercare for victims of domestic sex trafficking and abuse, and they empower their clients through pragmatic and compassionate support. See for more information about this organization and the important work they do.
