PATTERN DETAILS

All profits from this pattern to OneFundBoston to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon Bombing from now until the 2014 Marathon. Simple in design, one star for each victim, the Boston Skyline with the date 4*15*13 in the sky - optionally date can be replaced with the finish line ZIP Code. And in bold letters, BOSTON STRONG - the new motto for our town that says it all. The really crafty knitter will substitute their own ZIP Code, because as of 4*15*13, Boston became every town. Every ZIP Code is ours. Thank you in advance for your support. Any knitter wishing to donate a finished hat, please contact me at LISAGMC@AOL.COM and I will see that hats go to victims, families or runners.
