Savante Hats, part one (of many)

Pattern: Savante Hat, by DeBrosse
Yarn: Lion's Pride Wool Spun (almost a full skein for each hat)
Needles: size 11 16" circulars

I've been Insta-friends with Teresa for awhile now, and have been bugging her almost since we met to publish the Savante hat pattern. As she had just begun dipping her toes into pattern writing when we met, she kindly declined my offer, but said  maybe someday.

So, I've been stalking her shop and Instagram almost every day since. I've fallen head over heels in love with her mission to help mamas and babies in Haiti with every shop sale, and have bought several of her crochet patterns just so I could help support the cause.

And then.

One day, I hopped over to her shop. And there it was. The Savante pattern, just waiting for me to snap it up!!

Friends, this pattern is everything I could have hoped it would be, and then some!! Bulky yarn, no double points needed, a fast and easy to memorize pattern? Yes to all. These two hats flew off my needles, and I've got a truckload of bulky yarn that's about to become more Savante hats for sure!

And when I run out of bulky yarn? I'll probably just double up my worsted and keep on making!

The double brim makes this hat super warm, so whether you're an acrylic gal or a woolie lover, this is a pattern you can use for charity knitting and know the recipients will be kept super warm through every cold season they encounter.

My current plan is to make 100 of these over the summer, in both wool and acrylic, so that I'm ready for fall and winter donations!
