Free Knitting Pattern: Cottage Cap Easy Hat Pattern

Cottage Cap Free Knitting Pattern

The Charity Hat-Along is in full swing. As we enter our second month 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 Cottage Cap is our free hat knitting pattern that I developed for the charity drive. It's a great hat for beginners since it's just knitting and purling, nothing tricky! But it's also a fun knit for a more experienced knitter. Try the Cottage Cap today!

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:
