Pattern: Travel Hat, by Robyn Devine (free Ravelry download)
Suggested Yarn: Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool (thick worsted weight)
Suggested Needles: US 9 / 5.5 mm
This cabled hat is great for charity donations for a few reasons. It has a fold-over brim, which helps keep ears doubly warm. With several size options, this is a hat that can be made for kids as well as adults. The suggested yarn is wool, but the cables work just as well in acrylic yarn, meaning you can donate this hat to both wool-friendly and acrylic-only charities!
