The Aviatrix Hat is one of the most versatile hat patterns available for knitters. The pattern includes instructions for both DK or sport weight hats AND worsted weight hats, and both yarn weight instructions include sizes from newborns through adults.
This pattern can be made for donations to hospitals for new babies and cancer patients. These hats can be made for refugee camps and homeless shelters. While knitters most often use wool for these hats, you can just as easily use acrylic yarns and end up with a super cute hat!
