Ann's Pink Ribbon Chemo Beanie

My Sweet Momma

I designed this Free Pattern
"Ann's Pink Ribbon 
Chemo Beanie" 
to honor my mom.
She is a Breast 
Cancer Survivor!!!!

It is very important to keep a 
Chemo patients head covered, 
even during the summer months.
When you lose your hair fast, you sunburn easily, 
and even get a cold head in air conditioning. 
Also, use soft yarns as their head is 
newly "uncovered" and can be very tender.

If you would like to donate Hats to the

Skill Level : Easy
Material:
Hook : H
Yarn Needle
Yarn : Caron Simply Soft - light beige, light pink
Button of choice

Stitches used:
Chain - ch
Single Crochet -sc
Double Crochet - dc
Slip stitch -ss
Treble Crochet - trc ( for flower)

Gauge: 
15 Sts = 4” 
9 Rows = 4”

This pattern is designed for teens and adults going through chemo.
 I chose Caron simply soft, because it is very soft, and some of the stiffer
 yarns can be itchy and painful on naked heads.

Beanie Pattern:

Ch 2 at the end of each row are turning chs, do not count as a st.

R - 1 : With the light beige yarn, Ch 3, 12 dc in the 2nd ch from the hook, join in a circle with a sl st, ch 2 (12 dc)

R : 2 - In the 1st ch, ( Ch 3, 3 trc, ch 3), join to the next ch, repeat 9 more times for 10 flower petals. Sew on the side front of the hat, attach a button of choice.


This pattern is very special to me,
 as I wrote it for my momma, 
who went to Heaven July 16, 2013.

And it is my hope
 that Many Chemo patients 
can have a soft, 
and pretty hat to wear.
