I'm combining two passions: knitting and research. Hats Off started when I was knitting a funky slouchy style hat last year. Friends who saw the hat asked me to knit hats for them. Before I knew it, I had done 12 hats and accepted donations to IBCRF in lieu of payment for my costs and labor.
The hats are hand knitted (by me!) in a very soft, fine gauge microfiber yarn -- Serenity Garden from Premier Yarns. Hats are knitted in the round so there is no seam to irritate a sensitive scalp. Due to the very fine yarn, lots and lots of tiny stitches are needed. Each hat takes about 10 hours to create.
