knitting for charity
the company i work for raises money every year to buy toys for the less fortunate children for Christmas. this year i decided to knit a hat and sell it to someone at the office so that the proceeds would go to this charity.
Yarn: Patons shetland chunky in teal
Needles: size 10 straights and dpns
pattern: my own
Button from Joann's fabrics
I knit the seed stitch portion flat with some increasing and decreasing to round out the flap. Then i bound off stitches and joined the hat in the round. the area with the button flaps around until you pin it down with the button. i really like the way it looks.
if anyone expresses interest in the pattern i'd be happy to write one up. just let me know!
