Free Crochet Pattern: Shanti Hat

Meet the Shanti Hat! Isn't it cute? It's a free pattern just for our Charity Hat-Along and it's a great basic crochet hat pattern. Add stripes, try a pompom, pick your favorite colors!  The more the merrier, right? We are in our second month of the Charity Hat-Along and it's going really well. We have collected a few hundred hats but we still need more! Robyn and I have set a goal of 2,000 hats for children in need and we would LOVE to see that happen! The Shanti Hat is our free crochet hat pattern designed by Robyn just for the charity drive. It's a great hat that fits well and comes in four sizes! 

For this charity drive we are requesting hats for children. We're donating them to Completely Kids and their focus is children living at or below the poverty line. These hats can help keep them warm when maybe their families can't afford new clothes every winter. That means bigger hats are better! Focus on making the medium and large size hats because they're stretchy and will be able to fit a growing kid for years to come. 

Don't forget to download tags and label each hat for a chance to win the Charity Hat-Along giveaway! More details on that here. Send your completed hats by June 30, 2014 to:
