Jen at Knitting Like Crazy held a KAL/CAL for 5 weeks in June and July for hats to be donated to Halos of Hope in honor of her father now being cancer free. You can read more about it here. I knew I had some yarn I could spare but not necessarily a lot of time so I gave myself the goal of completing 3 hats. I met my goal and mailed them to Jen a few days before the deadline.
I first knit a plain hat. Didn't use any particular pattern. I used Caron Simply Soft yarn for all three which I've often used for hats so I knew roughly how many stitches to cast on.
Modeled by Floyd.

Ugh. Took picture of side where ends are woven in. Oh well. This pattern is reversible and crocheted. I loved it. It's a free download on ravelry.
Here is the other side which I preferred.
Floyd modeling it again.
Got to love that face.
Third hat is the same pattern. Made in 2 and a half hours in one day. I think I see several of these as gifts in my future. And perhaps one for myself.
Floyd modeling, of course.
He didn't like wearing this one and kept taking it off.
And grabbed it when I tried to get a picture of the other side.
All 3 stacked and ready to be mailed.
One more picture.
Surprise, surprise, here comes Floyd. For some reason he thinks the hats are for him.
"I like this one, Mama. Can I keep it?"
