People have been asking lately how they can get involved in this fun project/quest of mine! First, thanks so much for wanting to be part of this amazing hat-venture! When I started making hats, I never thought I'd end up making so many of them, or that hat-making would connect me with some of the most amazing folks I've ever met. I'm honored that so many of you want to get involved.

Here's a few simple and easy ways you can be part of the She Makes Hats story:

1. Join in on my latest charity drive! I'm always encouraging people to make hats and give them away, and I love to give you simple ways to do so. I've always got at least one charity hat drive going (sometimes I'm collecting the hats, sometimes you just send them on directly to the charity), so check the sidebar to see links to where you can send hats!

2. Pick up a copy of the book. Once you've read it, I'd love it if you left a review on Amazon.

3. Check out one of my hat patterns. I charge a nominal fee for each of my patterns - 100% of the money from these pattern sales goes to build schools so that all children have access to education.

You can always contact me at - I love to get to know new folks!

Refuge Hat Pattern

FINALLY sharing the Refuge Hat pattern! I've been using this for months now, and keep saying I'm going to get it written up, and then .... life. But yesterday I got the whole thing written up, so today you get to meet Refuge!

This isn't a pattern that no one has ever used before, by any means. It borrows from the Shanti Hat pattern for the brim, and from a few other crochet hat patterns I've seen around for the body. But rather than just continuing to share a few mods on Instagram each time I share a photo, I wrote it all down, turned it into a PDF, and am sharing it for free!

Here are the official deets from Ravelry, and you can also DOWNLOAD THE PATTERN here!

Perfect for donation, the Refuge Hat uses HDC throughout to create a thick and comfy texture that will keep your head warm in any conditions. Make it in wool or acrylic, cotton or blends, and donate it to every place that accepts hats!

Approx 140 yds worsted weight yarn.

I have used Vanna’s Choice, Hobby…
