This hat was designed for Halos of Hope, a non-profit organization that provides hats to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. Cotton Supreme DK is an approved Halos of Hope yarn because it is so soft and feels good on a bare head.
It is knit in the round from the bottom up. During Crown Shaping, when there are too few stitches to fit on the circular, switch to double pointed.
The hat shown fits snug, like a beanie. For a slouchier hat, repeat rounds 1-10 of Healing Vibes pattern an additional 1-2 times. Each repeat of the pattern will add 1¼" to the finished length of the hat.
