  1. thanks for sharing not only a great, quick pattern, for for getting the word out about making hats for charity. I donated over 150 hats, scarves and lapghans/baby afghans just before the holidays. It feels GREAT!

  7. Great pattern, I can make one in less than an hour.. Our hospital auxiliary members make them for the newborns. Made 9 while on vacation. Thinking of adding cocoons to go with them. Thanks SKline.
