Sharing a Hat Pattern

Folks a few days ago (16th), you saw some hats...lots of knitting ones from Barbie T and her chapter in Florida (          ).  I know many of you a pattern very similar if not this one and I wanted to post it here (as well as in the hat section...see hat tab at the top of the blog).

It's such a versatile pattern good for many sized heads due to it's stretch.  Geri, another lady in the group provided the pattern for me in an email.

Adult's cast on 96, teens cast on 68.

K2, P2 across row
knit above rib pattern for 9 1/2 inches
begin decrease with K2tog across row
Purl next row
Repeat last 2 rows (the decrease rows) 3 x......Bind Off leaving enough yarn to stitch up your side seam.

Add topper if you wish, though it's not necessary; and probably preferred for most adult hats, certainly plain is best for the men folk.

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. YOU truly DO make a difference. THANK YOU!

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
