Boyfriend hats for cancer patients

To stay on the hat theme, here are two knits I finished ages ago, but never remembered to blog about them. I do think they are pretty enough to have their own post, though, don't you think?

 

In fact they were knitted last summer to support a little charity action called 100 Beanie Drive, and currently they are warming the heads of cancer patients in Australia!

 

The pattern I used was the Boyfriend hat, and the yarn was Novita Hanko, a recycled cotton yarn from Finland.

 

I really liked the yarn but boy, did it pill! I was covered in cotton fluff every time I sat down and knit for 5 minutes! But it was worth it, the yarn was wonderfully soft and pleasantly thick to knit.

 

How do you like 'em hats?
