PATTERN DETAILS

I had a request for some patriotic hats for a 3 month old baby boy 4th of July photo shoot, so I got to work on some ideas, this Star and Stripes Hat being one of them. This hat is great in any color combination or with any applique, works great for photo shoots and/or as a baby shower gift. Star Applique pattern included. Material Notes: Yarn Alternatives: Caron's Simply Soft, Caron's Party Yarn, Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton Yarn, Hobby Lobby's Soft Secret, Lion Brand's Wool Ease. You will want a yarn that is soft to the touch for babies soft, sensitive skin, and acrylic or cotton are the best options to avoid allergens so the Wool Ease and the Party Yarn really aren't the best option for babies. I was working multiple projects at once so I am not sure exactly on the yardage but with one 4 oz/203 skein of each color, you will be able to work up 4-5 hats. Time Spent: The newborn size was ready in just under an hour, the 3-6 month size in just about an hour, and the 6-12 month size in just over an hour. If you don't work the striped pattern, you can expect to work up the hats in about half that time. **11.07.15 UPDATE: Corrected errors in Star Pattern, and Updated Abbreviations.

I began with needlepoint on plastic canvas (thank you Aunt Arlys!) about six years ago, making anything I could get my hands on or brain to think up, from masks for school plays to picture frames and small trinkets but recently (less than a year ago), I’ve gotten into jewelry making and working on my crocheting/sewing/etc. I currently craft full time. This is my true passion, and I am very grateful for your business, support and feedback! I chose the name Eye Love Knots in honor of the Burckhalter/Lindhorn family (my very close cousins). Our family has been affected by Retinoblastoma, a cancer of one or both eyes which occurs in young children. There are approximately 350 new diagnosed cases per year in the US and affect about one in every 15,000 births. Although children may be born with retinoblastoma, it is rarely diagnosed at birth. As a rapidly growing cancer, studies of the bones, bone marrow and spinal fluid are also performed upon discovery. If the tumor is contained within the eye, more than 95% of patients can be cured. For those children with tumors in both eyes, close to 70-80% of the eyes can be saved, although many of them need radiation therapy, or possibly even chemotherapy. Fifteen percent of every purchase made from me will be donated to aid in the medical advances and new discoveries on the fight against Retinoblastoma, blindness and other eye diseases. Donations go to the National Retinoblastoma Research and Support Foundation headed by Dr. Timothy Murray If you aren’t in need of any of my handmade treasures but would like to make a donation today, please email me so I can set this up for you.
