Today is very warm here in Delaware, but it's time to kick off the 12 Weeks of Christmas!
If you want to make this using lighter weight yarn, you might want to double the stripes. You might want to work with just one color. You might want to make each stripe a different color. Have fun with it! It's a simple pattern that gives a bit of texture and interest to the cap.
Everyone is welcome to join us! Hopefully you will be inspired to make a hat or two (or three or forty!) for a local cancer center or to send to us at Delaware Head Huggers. Chemo caps are in huge demand right now and you can help!
Please consider donating if you are using my patterns. I post these patterns, mostly free, so everyone can use them to help others. Shipping and supply costs to run DEHH are high and every little bit helps.
Join us on Facebook to see some fun fundraisers that we have going on - you can purchase DEHH stickers, nature notecards or calendars. You can purchase pattern books or individual patterns of some of our designs. Or you can simply use the donate button to the right on this page.
Hopeful Ribbons is the first pattern. This model was knit using Charisma yarn in 2 colors and size 11 needles, but of course, instructions are included for all yarn weights.
It's Electric is the second pattern. It's named this because so many people thought it looked like lightning bolts. The model was knit with worsted weight yarn, but the pattern includes information for all yarn weights. Keep in mind that if you knit this using thicker yarn, the pattern will be fewer rows and will look different. Not bad, just different!
We also have patterns available as paperbacks or a Kindle e-books from Amazon. They can be purchased here.
Remember to join us on our Facebook page - you can see all the beautiful hats that are donated and shipped out.
