The hat is named after my niece Emily who is an RN on the cardiac floor. The pretty brim is an easy slip stitch pattern that reminds me of an ekg. This pattern is written in three weights: Aran, Worsted and DK. Whip up a few of these hats and become a Holiday Hat Hero much like our everyday Medical Heroes…. like Emily.
