Substitute patterns

Commercial patterns you can use in place of my pattern Voque V9235 view B.




If you shorten this pattern and add lining it should work too. They urge you to make a hat for donating if you use their pattern. I can't post a picture of the hat since they don't allow it.



For girls pattern You could use McCall's M7012


And just add a headband and flower.

Twist headband

Cut a strip 40 1/2 by 5 inches, making sure it stretches lenghtwise. Sew the short ends right sides together to get a loop. Finish the edges with a rolled hem on serger or leave unfinished (knits do not ravel much).


Fold into a figure 8.


Fold the part that is under over the other.


Straighten out and bring loops together.

Testing unlined caps and sheer headbands

For summer I made some unlined hats from soft rayon. They are heading out to be tested by one of my Etsy customers. After I figure out any issues with them I will try to make more.

I also got some sheer knit for headbands and flowers. Very happy with how vibrant the sheer headbands look. I put the flowers on pinbacks which gives many more possibilities to mix and match hats, headbands and flowers. 1 hat with 3 headbands/flowers gives 7 different ways to wear.

Heading for my yearly checkup

Today is my check up with the oncologist. I am taking with me 16 headcoverings for the infusion room at RGH. I am always grateful that I am able to do this. It's because of them that my whole chemo headcovering crating got started. On my first chemo day I was able to pick out a hat made by a volounteer, it touched my heart deeply. And once I recovered from treatments I  wanted to pay it forward. To this date I have been able to donate more than 376 headcoverings.
