Introducing Lateral Pass!

Schnapps is still busy making "Football Hats" and I am trying to keep up with him.  I'm a few behind, but finally got this one ready!  He used Lion Brand Hometown USA for the model, but as always, directions for all yarn weights are included.

Hats are coming in every week and shipping out just as quickly!  There is a huge need right now for chemo caps, especially for adults, so if you have some spare time, please consider making some and donating them locally or to DEHH.  

Schnapps says "THANK YOU" to all our supporters!

The patterns in the photo below are the patterns found in The Play Book, an e-book of patterns that are not published elsewhere.  The e-book can be purchased by using the link to the right on this page or by going to my Ravelry store or my Craftsy store.  Those links are also to the right of this page.   100% of the cost of all my patterns is put right back into supplies and shipping for DEHH.
