Introducing the Pinwheel Panache Chemo Cap!

Here is the latest pattern.  Thank you Geri for naming this hat!  This pattern is posted in gratitude for all the prayers and thoughts that helped my friend Karen get good news from the doctor this week and Ryan do well in his battle against leukemia.  I was going to keep this for the calendar, but had to post to say THANK YOU!  Please keep them both in your thoughts and prayers that they continue to do well!

This is a long pattern and it is a bit complicated.  The stitches are all simple though, so don't be intimidated.  It is knit flat and seamed for those of you who prefer that method of hat making!  Just pay close attention to your stitches and you will be fine!  Do what Schnapps did and take a break frequently to go play in the hose!  

Cool off and take a break and then go back and knit some more!


I knit this using Louisa Harding's Kashmir Baby, but any sport, or 3-weight yarn would do.  Something smooth will show off the stitch definition best.

The pattern may also be found on Scribd.com as a PDF .  If you are printing this, use print preview to determine the pages you wish to print or copy and paste it into a Word document to ensure that you print only what you want. 

PINWHEEL PANACHE!


Here it is flat too, but you can't see the detail as much.
