More hats

Since I used scraps to make my hats they often ended up having two seams. And to hide those seams I made headbands/hatbands. I played around with different styles based on how much fabric I had to work with. I'll try to add the pattern I used soon too. Pattern can now be found here Free Chemo Hat Pattern , sewing tutorial is here Chemo hat tutorial

Stretch Velour

Even more scarves and a few hats

I made some more scarves and found that I had just enough scraps to make some hats as well. For the hat pattern I used the pattern by . I had to modify the pattern because my knit behaved differently and I used lining so my hats were assembled differently but it's still a basic beanie pattern. My altered hat pattern can now me found here Free Chemo Hat Pattern, tutorial for sewing is here Free chemo Hat Sewing Tutorial.

More scarves

Here are a few more that I made from different polyester knits. The purpose of the elastic in the back is to be able to gather the large amount of fabric. The stretch comes from the knit fabric itself, just make sure you place the pattern on the fabric so that stretch is in the same direction as straight hem.

Animal print ITY knit
Houndstooth ITY knit with slight sheen

The only difference to the original Free chemo scarf pattern is that I made the scarf ends pointy since it makes it easier to do the rolled hem.
The crushed velour came from Fashion Fabrics Club, all other fabrics were from FabricMart
