Pattern Description:

I wrote this pattern in honor of my son Nate as he was going in for his 3rd cranial surgery. I wanted to write a pattern and donate the proceeds for the first full month to a charity called Cranio Care Bears. They send care packages to children that are having surgery for craniosynostosis, the condition my son was born with.

From January 21-February 21, I will be donating all proceeds from this hat to Cranio Care Bears.

This pattern is named after him and is designed to resemble the stitches used to stitch up the ear to ear incision. This pattern means more to me than any other that I have written to date.

This pattern comes in size newborn to adult. The possibilities are endless with this pattern. I include a few ideas at the end. You can use any Worsted Weight yarn as long as you match the gauge suggested.
