Calvin's Hats is offering to grieving parents a gift which can bring a small amount of comfort and peace... a hat tiny enough to fit right on their precious child's head and something to hold on to when their child is no longer here.
Our wish is for these hats to bring a small amount of healing."

After reading Calvin's story I had to make some of those hats!! I decided to follow the crochet pattern listed on the site but had to change it up bit. I thought I would share my pattern here for those who are interested. I think this project would be a wonderful option for a service project for the Young Women. I'm working on getting something together on the stake YW level. Cross your fingers it works out for me!
Size G hook
Rnd 1: Ch 3, join with sl st to form a ring. Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) Make 15 more dc inside ring.
Join with a sl st in top of 1st ch 3. Ch 3
