Why It's Charity-Friendly:
Written specifically for a charity drive, this pattern combines knits and purls for a dense fabric perfect for donation hats. Knit in washable wool, this pattern works well for over-seas donations, and when you substitute in acrylic yarn, you can donate to hospitals and homeless shelters as well!
