The Hummingbird Hat is a stretchy, striped hat designed to meet the donation requirements for Knots of Love, a nonprofit organization that distributes hats to people suffering from traumatic hair loss and blankets to infants in neonatal intensive care units. This hat uses a simple stitch pattern that can be worked flat OR in the round, so you choose how to make it! This is part of a Knit-a-Long sponsored by Lion Brand. Find out more about the Knit-a-Long here. Chat with other knitters in the KAL thread here on Ravelry.
