Basic Skills Necessary:

  • 2-stranded color work
  • knitting in the round

Pattern Description:

This is part of my "science themed" hats. I designed this hat for my friend Greg who uses a mouse model to study gastric cancer. It is a soft and warm hat with mice playing around the brim. Read more about the pattern at www.craftimism.com/2013/05/mouse-pattern-hat.html.

I made this for Greg when he began his journey battling Ewing's Sarcoma last May. Unfortunately he lost his battle with cancer. In his memory, I will donate all proceeds from this hat to CJ's journey, a charity that helped Greg during his battle. For more information about Greg's story or CJ's Journey, see http://www.craftimism.com/2013/12/a-sad-post.html.
