October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There are many ways to show and give your support, one of which is to make something meaningful to wear! The Hope Hat is a stunning knit cap featuring a stranded colorwork ribbon and speckle motif in a medley of pink shades beautifully matched to the inspiration. Worsted weight Cotton Supreme is a perfect choice for the Hope Hat, because it is easy to care for and buttery-soft. Even those with ultra-sensitive scalps can wear this yarn with ease.
